What Would Eatough Do?

Your my boy blue!

this is an audio post - click to play

If the physical task of simply riding your bike for 24 hours straight isn't hard enough, try doing it with a little of mother nature's fury mixed in. The race has been called an hour and a half early due to severe thunder and lightning.

Eatough has been crowned 24 hour national champion and has managed to do so by lapping the entire solo field. Nat Ross, who has done more 24 hour solo events than anyone in the world, finished up the day in second. Much respect to everyone out there for pushing their mind and body beyond its limits. Here's to being hardcore....

That's really cool you kept the audio updates on here. I was wondering if you were going to swing out to the race or not, but it was a good one. Too bad it wasn't a full 24 hour race due to bad weather. Nonetheless, Chris definitely deserved this win and it was fun watching and racing on the same course as him.
