Ride! From Ultra-Cycling Rookie to Racing Across America

Author(s): Josh Kench


How a pretty unfit, very ordinary bloke became an ultra-endurance cyclist and undertook one of the great feats of human endurance. "At his brother’s wedding in 2002, 30-year-old Josh Kench ... announced that he was going to do the Coast to Coast. His pronouncement was met with derision but he’s proved his doubters wrong. Josh won the 2010 Ultra-enduro Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge covering a mind-numb[ing] 8 laps of the 160km course in 55 hours. But that was only the start. In June 2011, the 39-year-old Wellington plumber lined up to compete in the Race Across America - a 16-day race covering 4828km from California to Maryland. This is the story of how an ordinary Kiwi bloke became an ultra-endurance athlete and decided to take on the world"--Publisher’s information.
