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.
