'If I ride up that hill 88 times I'd have basically climbed Everest!' Welcome to the world of Everesting. The rules are simple: choose one hill, go up and down, in one day, until your elevation gain is at 8,848m. What could be easier?

I fell in love with this mountain when I competed in the 2012 edition. 3,275m over 100km, it is a truly mesmerising climb and ridiculously beautiful - and insanely hard!

I've been to many countries but Mongolia has my heart. What an incredible place to ride a bike through, eagles above, wild horses by your side and camels gazing on. Not to mention great poeple to ride with. 7 days in paradise! And NO-WIFI! The 2015 edition is on August 21st-30th.
This isn’t just a bike race. Listed in the top ten hardest MTB events in the world, it is an epic journey. Now, epic is a much maligned word but that is what it is. It’s akin to a climb up Everest, a canoe adventure down the Amazon, a trek across the Sahara and an expedition to the Antarctic. Similar to those immense adventures, the true story of the Mongolia Bike Challenge is one which must be undertaken to be truly understood.
