Last weekend I spent 36 hours awake in the desert just north of Tucson, Arizona. I was there to document an endurance race: a 24 hour, off-road bicycle endurance race to be precise. As with most of these events, the crowd was broken into groups including four-man teams, pairs, solo, and most impressively: solo single speed. That’s 24 hours of riding through the desert with just one gear. The event was fantastic, a real eye opener into just what people will put themselves through in the name of sport. Broken bones, lost teeth, cactus injuries, blood loss and cramps were all part of it. I’m not sure I have that kind of dedication in me for anything, which saddens me a little. I can barely keep this blog going. Perhaps I’m a quitter, who knows. (vimeo link)
