Ah, pish. A REAL endurance contest would be Paris to Vladivostok... and back.... in winter. No Denny's to warm up in. No convenience stores. Hungry wolves and Tatars behind every bush. A Man's sport! And you don't ride the roads.... the roads ride you!

Arrrrgh!

Another dusty one from the Archives! This one: By Mark Hammond, Aug. 14, 2003.

And two, non-consecutive 11-hour days left a saddle imprint on my six that has yet to fully disappear.

Youse can have that "endurance" malarky!
