- Which is the world's most epic mountain bike race?
I thought GDR stood for great divide RACE. It would have to be this or the iditabike the others dont come close. Unless you go back to the earlier days of the Tour de France when they raced 5000+ kilometres (at times on what we would now call off-road on essentially rigid singlespeeds) before they shortened it to suit TV.Posted 8 years agobeejSubscriber
Trans Rockies – no way. Mate has done it, he's only a bit fitter than me (and I'm no superman – just about scrape top 25% in most things).
Cape Epic – easier than TR, I've been told.
La Ruta – considering it's only three days, it seems pretty epic.
Iditabike – possible.
What's that one in Australia?Posted 8 years agoDirtynapMember
Yak Attack – if your not born in high altitude you're never ever ever ever going to win or even get close. On average superfit mortals finish 15+hours behind the locals. Just finishing is an achievement plus you don't get to go higher or come down further anywhere else on earth. Sounds about as epic as it ever gets.Posted 8 years agodanoMember
Apparently this one is an absolute beast… Racers riding over corrugated roads can suffer from internal bleeding and stuff…+ aussies are harder than anyone, factPosted 8 years ago
