Joe and Tom’s Welsh coast-to-coast challenge, featured in MBUK 350, is an epic 215-mile ride that has 7,880m of climbing, visits seven different trail centres and normally takes five days to complete. Our boys thought that wasn’t hard enough, so decided to tackle the ride in one go, unsupported and with no sleep. What could possibly go wrong?

Features Editor Alex calls the mellow rolling hills of Dorset home, but before he started on MBUK, he lived in The French Alpine town of Morzine for seven years. Here he developed a scary ability to make the steepest and gnarliest trails look like a walk in the park. Occasionally his speed caught up with him, resulting in several bone crunching crashes at World Cup downhill level. Since hanging up his racing shoes Al regularly clocks up a massive weekly mileage on his trail bike, so is one of our hardiest testers.
