The hardest bike race in the world?

Indian Pacific Wheel Race

March 18th 2017

The inaugural Indian Pacific Wheel Race is a solo, unsupported, 5,500km event running ocean-to-ocean across Australia, inspired by the grand tours of bike packing: the Tour Divide, the Trans Am Bike Race and the Transcontinental. A first-class international field will roll out from Fremantle, WA at 6:00am on 18th March 2017, and finish on the steps of the Sydney Opera House.

Over the coming weeks we will introduce a selection of riders and bring you daily coverage across our social channels as these adventurers test their limits, where nothing is at stake except honour.

The man behind the #IPWR, 2015 Trans America Winner, Jesse Carlsson, provides explanation.
