This past weekend, 41-year-old Lindsay Shepard from New Mexico completed approximately 800 miles and 90,000 feet of elevation gain/loss on the Doom bikepacking route through the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas. Lindsay is the first person to accomplish a yo-yo on the Doom route, completing the course twice in one go. And, according to race organizers, “probably the only one to do this for a LONG time.”
