The Indian Pacific Wheel Race was my introduction to following an ultra-endurance race.

Following the various rider's progression across Australia through Social Media, and has, up until this point, been incredibly inspirational.

This is horribly sad news.

I just watched a documentary a couple weeks ago about the TransAm Bicycle Race where Mike was prominently featured. Crazy to hear that he is dead...

Notice of the immediate cancellation of the race went up on the IPWR Facebook page about half an hour ago. A very sad conclusion to what has been an enthralling event.
Nice bike... you ever take it off any sweet jumps?

Can't imagine what Jesse and the crew are dealing with right now. Years of planning ending with a legend fallen.

Praying there's some sort of mistake.

What just happened :|? When I meant they were battling for the first place I didn't mean fighting with the cars for the safety and passage on the road...
