    Awesome work chaps – love it

    One for the list next year, hopefully!

    I think there is some room for improvement regarding the editing of this video. It’s virtually impossible to tell what’s going on. One guy quits the race, presumably because of a hand injury, but the video does not provide any explanation regarding what’s going on. Some other guy — or maybe it’s the same guy — is repeatedly shown as “retired” and at the same time riding in 2nd place (?). If he’s retired from the race, why is he still riding ? Again, why can’t the video provide some explanation of what’s going on ?

    All the non-aussies are going to wonder what “crack the sh#ts” means haha

    I liked it! This style of backpacking/racing is so refreshing…

  • misterhorsey

    Amazing effort! Great film and stunning scenery. Thanks CT!

  • Coogs

    Wow. She smashed it! Well worth watching.

  • RC1234

    Looks seriously epic but not fun at all! Why would anyone want to do this to themselves? Even that woman who won and the only finisher looked depressed at the end instead of happy… wtf is the point?
    I compare it to tour divide in North America which is extremely epic and hard but keep coming back because they are having a good time… taking it easy and enjoying the fact that they are riding through the wilderness even though it’s extremely difficult. This on the other hand just looks like torture and not fun at all.

    Spectacular shots and camera work particular the drone scenes of the wet centre. In my mind a documentary is very different and has a lot more latitude than a race report – this definitely fits as a doco. I thought this was a taster without all the answers – it retained some mystery. I really enjoyed it. People asking why put yourself through something like this – testing boundaries, finding points of failure and working round limitations is a driver for some people – accept it. Well done to all responsible.
