    Brilliant stuff; I really enjoyed that Adam. Thanks for sharing.

    I loved how your words here seem to be a world apart from the video footage. I read this first; then watched the video. It went from [imagining] the encouraging chaos and massive crowds [never heard of money being offered before] to the isolation of empty roads and the vastness during those recon / training rides.

    Probably my favourite video diary yet.

      seconded. great read, an excellent diary.

    • Thanks Michele! I really appreciate the feedback :) I try and make the article different to the video, I want them to be related but two different stories. And yes, it is not often you get offered money (if only I wasn’t so tired!). Thanks for watching and reading.

      Cheers!

    An eloquence, intelligence and insight rarely provided by a professional sportsperson. That makes for a refreshing change. Great stuff Adam.

    • Very kind words Matt – cheers! Glad you enjoyed it.

  • David Bonnett

    Nice – I’ve ridden most of those roads and you caught the feel perfectly. Good luck for the rest of the season.

    • Thanks David, there are some epic rides out in this part of the world! I’m loving it.

  • Neil W

    Looks stunning, one for the bucket list, thanks for posting Adam

    • It’s even more stunning in person Neil! Definitely make the trip if you get the chance – thanks

    Great post Adam thanks, loved the write up in and of itself, and the video and soundtrack were just right:) Quick question on the footage where you guys are rolling with Jelly Belly, was that a joint training ride? Just curious if you guys established some good links with the Jelly Belly team over there maybe through the aussie connection there (i.e Morton bros) and also whether this translates into some kind of partial alliance during some race scenarios? Probably not I realise, but just curious! :)

    • Thanks mate!

      We had just bumped into them while out doing a recon of the first stage of US Pro Challenge! I’m friends with the Mortons so it was nice to catch up :) But yeah, no alliances during the race – they’re definitely our competitors out on the road. But it is always good to have a chat with them in the middle of an easy part of a stage!

    S…I…C…K…video. Makes me want to go riding there. Luckily, I live in CO. The slomo and rewind made it for me.

    • Cheers Logan! You are lucky to live in CO – awesome part of the world
