Sports journalist Kevin Davie shares his story of mountain biking in remote, wide-open South African spaces.
He endures a 10,000 kilometer journey that tests his courage and determination: through blizzards, lightning, and hail storms, as well as 104-degree heat. Riding in minimalistic fashion, carrying all of his equipment without the aid of a backup vehicle, Davie's story explores the question of why athletes push themselves to rise to the challenge of extreme sport. It also provides a stirring account of South Africa and the incredible warmth and support from locals who reached out to help.
