If you missed it, this year’s GBDURO self-sufficiency mandate required participants to carry all of their food—and resulting waste—for the entire 1,200-mile journey that follows the GB Divide Route in the UK. First place finisher, Josh Ibbett, shot GoPro footage during his ride and with help from Ryan Le Garrec, put together an 18-minute video for an inside look at the event. Watch it below.
