GBDuro 2019 – EF Gone Racing



If Dirty Kanza whet your appetite for rides out of the ordinary, allow us to introduce GBDuro: a 2,000km race devised by The Racing Collective, mostly off-road, that joins the UK’s furthest points. Lachlan Morton set off from Land’s End, not really knowing what was in store. This is what he found.

The alternative calendar is our attempt at changing the status quo in cycling. Together with EF Education First Pro Cycling we want to expand the sport’s horizons to make it a more engaging and entertaining prospect for all.

Good Hollywood movie story line stuff. Sure, it's a pro that smashes non-pros in an endurance event, but obviously much more. Our hero accepts a challenge and has difficulties a long the way. He's uplifted by the beauty of the outdoors and the people he meets on his journey. He completes his mission while learning something greater about himself and the accomplishment.

EF has a lot of riders that have great personalities – and that’s a good thing, cause several other teams do not…

It seems that it must have been as much work doing the cinematography as it was for the bike riders.

Bravo well done this was a remarkable journey to follow. I appreciate how much work went into putting just film together

just like the tour of the Divide. having the camera crew follow him so much gave him an unfair mental and emotional support factor…
