Back in March of last year, we shared Axel Carion’s story of his record-setting trip on the Jordan Bike Trail with fellow ultra-cyclist Jonas Deichmann, during which the pair of riders pedaled the 730 kilometers from Umm Qais in the north to Aqaba in the south in just 120 hours. As a follow-up to their trip, they recently released a 16-minute documentary-style film that provides an intimate look at what the two riders experienced as they crossed Jordan, engaging with local people and tackling tough terrain along the way. Watch it below:
