      What a weird comment? Why would you say that?

      • Johnson

        Sense of humour to aisle 3 please.

  • They are certainly brave women, no matter whether they didn’t quite make it, made the full 8848m or even the 10,000m. They all deserve a huge round of applause.

  • Jon Thornton

    Fantastic effort girls. It was a privilege to roll a few laps with you. Totally reset my concept of achievement.

  • jules

    i’ve done a couple of long rides with big vert but nothing like this. i’ve felt the exhaustion that comes with a big day in the saddle, the knowledge you still have x amount of climbing to push out. the sheer bloody-minded willpower to keep going is what gets you through. sometimes even that’s not enough and you have to call it a day. congrats to all

  • Rowena

    Its brilliant isn’t it, makes me all teary thinking about what they achieved and knowing that climb as I’ve done it a few times (not in a row) myself. Well done ladies and good work to all their supporters.

  • Amazing efforts all round. Huge respect.

  • Amy

    Those girls are some of the toughest people I’ve ever met and had the pleasure to be dropped by.

  • Cheryle

    OMG OMG OMG I have nothing but respect and admiration for all the women and their achievements!

  • Frank rog

    Massive effort hazel.
    Nuts with more then likely a chest infection .
    You are a scary fast climber.
    Well done.

  • Mad respect ladies! Massive kudos and welcome to the 8848m club.

    I am in awe.
    Well done to everyone – that is epic.

  • Shiffon

    Just brilliant! You’ve got me so inspired. I’m going to get our local ladies together to do the same thing!

    • Simone Giuliani

      That is great to hear. I look forward to seeing another big batch of women hit the Everesting hall of fame.

  • Cam

    Such a great effort by all riders and the Hells 500 team for the organisation of the attempt

  • Percy

    brilliant & inspiring job – you got it! =

    Wow! Super effort from the cyclists, a huge congratulations.!!!

  • lowercasev

    NB. I was carrying a rain jacket, booties and gloves up my back – hence the new “camel” look. I’m generally more streamlined than that. :-D

    Fair effort ladies – huge effort, in fact. Well done to all.
