In this episode I have a chat with Anisa Aubin who recently raced, and finished the GBDuro.
The GBDuro is a race created by the Racing Collective (https://www.theracingcollective.com/). This is how they describe the race:
'GBDURO is a 2000km self-supported bikepacking enduro from Land's End to John O'Groats on road, gravel, singletrack, and everything in between.
The event follows our GBDIVIDE route designed to embrace the versatility of 'all-road' bikes to cover big distances on new roads and ancient ways, immersing riders in the rich and unique history that has shaped the British Isles.
Under normal conditions the ride consists of 4 timed stages (~500km each); lowest aggregate time over the 4 stages 'wins'... nothing.'
Anisa is an experienced ultra racer with finishes under her belt in races such as the TransAtlantic way, Paris-Brest-Paris and the Trans Continental. As she rides she also raises funds for a charity to help children get an education over in Malawi, Africa.
We have a talk about her experience with the GBDuro and how she left everything on the route.

I hope you enjoy the episode.
