Thomas Lindup's Bluff-te Reinga Record Attempt

Postby Oli on Thu 10/Mar/11 10:39pm

What a gutsy and incredible attempt at setting a solo, unsupported cycling record between Bluff and Cape Reinga. Unfortunately he didn't make it past Auckland but he fought off a debilitating knee injury to make it that far, including an incredible 396km final day from Waiouru to Auckland.

It certainly was a hard fought attempt :thumbsup: , Thomas has a heap of mental strength to be able to ride like that, very impressed.

great effort. I love hearing stories of supreme sporting individuals :)

Colin Anderson who did the supported ride now rides unsupported at all his events. The last time he rode with support was for the Paris Brest Paris ride. I had the pleasure of joining him at Taupo last year and rode 1/2 of lap 3 of eight with him which was an honour as it also marked his 50th Enduro Lap of the Lake.
I'll forward a link for the article to him as I know he will want to read it.

Great job. I definitely don't envy Thomas that trip.
