He is riding an ultra endurance race from Vienna to Barcelona. 2,000 km over eight days although he somewhat optimistically (his view) would like to target six days :shock:

There are more and more of these endurance long distance races, inspired by Mike Hall's TCR. I can see the lure, I'm probably not there mentally (yet)... I kind of enjoy a very long day, but I am still unsure about multi day with 300 km + a day.
I have a guaranteed entry for LEL 2021, but I will probably volunteer to help instead... it's kind of more fun :wink:
