I'm taking part in the first Silk Road Mountain Race 2018.

The Silk Road Mountain Race (SRMR) is a 1000 mile, unsupported race around the remote parts of Kyrgyzstan.
90% off road, hard pack, dirt, mud and single track. Very little in resupply and high mountain passes
... but the scenery, jaw dropping.

If you would like to follow the race see the resources below.

The official Tracking / Dot Watching site is here.
