    18: Grace Lambert-Smith - DotWatcher, Audax riding and the Transcontinental

    Grace joins us on this episode to talk about her background in audax, bikepacking and ultra-endurance cycling.

    Grace discovered long distance riding through semi-supported audax events, eventually working her way up to complete the renowned Paris-Brest-Paris. Grace also competed in the Transcontinental bikepacking race back in 2017 during the scorching heatwave known as "Lucifer".

    Grace is also the managing editor at DotWatcher, a platform dedicated to providing comprehensive coverage of bikepacking and ultra-endurance bike races. The idea behind the site is a community driven platform collating information that tells the story of the race beyond what could be gleaned from simply watching the racer's "Dots" move across the map.

    Honestly its an awesome idea thats growing momentum and has me really excited about the window it can provide into our sport. But the platform relies on us the community to contribute information, data and content to make it work. So lets gets behind it!

    17: Dan Hunt - Hunt Bikes and the Hunt 1000 Bikepacking Route/Event

    17: Dan Hunt - Hunt Bikes and the Hunt 1000 Bikepacking Route/Event

    This week I'm joined by guest Dan Hunt to talk about Hunt Bikes and the epic adventure that is the Hunt 1000, a self supported bikepacking challenge traversing the Australian Alps from Canberra to Melbourne.

    We discuss the original inspiration for the route and the event, some of the unique aspects of the route and how Dan has tried to foster a really inclusive spirit around such a rough challenge. As well the serious and harsh nature of the Australian high country, preparing yourself to undertake the challenge and some of the potential avenues Dan is looking to explore for the future of the event.

    Last year Dan competed in the Silk Road Mountain Race in Kyrgyzstan, which is a really unique and challenging event in its own right. We discuss Dan's experience there and what lessons he took away from that event that he might look to apply to the Hunt.
