James Lowsley-Williams, known to most as Hank, was a domestic professional road cyclist from 2012-18 and is now a presenter for Global Cycling network. Hank is a boy racer who has always craved the big adventures, so jumped at the opportunity over the last few years to take his enthusiasm and bike skills into some ultra-endurance challenges, testing his mind and body beyond.
These have included recreating the first stage of the 1903 Tour de France, a 300 mile ride from Paris to Lyon on a vintage single-speed and climbing to 6893 meters up the worlds highest volcano and freeriding 300km through the Atacama desert to the Pacific. This episode is a fascinating insight into what it takes to transition from road racing to adventure and endurance cycling.
