100 miles/Classic


Many details are necessary to explain the magnitude of this challenge. I only want to congratulate the organizers and hope that next year will be better than this year, but never let this beginning essence get lost. All the best and success for you.


It is more a symbolic desert than a real one, because be or not to be transposable does not depends on geografic reality, but also your strong psicology.
