The Rift Iceland

It was an amazing adventure to join The Rift Iceland for the first time. The Rift is a 200 km (125 miles) off-road bike race through the dark lava fields in the highlands of Iceland. It traverses the continental rift between North America and Eurasia – a rift that grows one inch every year. The growth is evident with vast lava fields all around creating a surreal landscape. A landscape that is remote, rugged and unpredictable! In the final sprint with 6 riders I took 2nd place.
