  • New helmet day! My new custom made @HEXR lid has arrived just in time for #BikingManOman. It fits like a glove and the honeycomb material dumps heat 8x quicker than traditional foam. Very handy in the desert this weekend!
  • Recently, I got the chance to be in contact with @jameshendersonalifeofadventure, THE writer about sports and adventure for the Financical Times. His website is all about races and expeditions in ultracycling but also hiking, kayaking... I'm really proud to be featured on his website where I share my race on @bikingman_ultra Portugal 🇵🇹
I also had the opportunity to unveil some details explaining why I started ultracycling!

  • Darren Franks' amazing long-distance race machine has been thoroughly serviced again and he's about to take it to ride #BikingManOman - 1060km in under 5 days, through (and over) spectacular scenery in south-east Arabia.
The bike's a custom titanium @j.laverackbicycles J.ack, with a mostly Ultegra Di2 groupset, @rideaera wheels and @3tbike cockpit. A @sonnabendynamo hub and a new Igaro D2 will make sure his gadgets stay fully charged.
Bon courage, @darren_franks!

  • It's time to go back to where it all began.... My original plan was to skip BikingMan Oman. With the Race Around Rwanda starting three weeks earlier it felt like it would be pushing too much.

However, my recovery from Rwanda has been really good. I did nothing for ten days and then got back on the bike at the weekend... And I felt amazing. My numbers are up, I feel mentally refreshed and most importantly ready to race and to race hard. Last year I had such a blow to my training with the crash just 5 weeks before the race. This time I feel I'm going in at a really good level.

I can't wait to go and see what I can do this time.

See you all in Muscat
