This was taken by 📸Will Vousden on Day 1 of Bikepacking Around Norway. A 3400km Endurance Race. I’ve spent a lot of time putting together the incredible story that this race produced. Eight set off but only four riders made it past the finish line. If you want to know what happen check out my latest video uploaded to YT (link in bio).

It'll be a while until I can share new smiles-on-a-bike pics. There's a road of recovery to master, but the knee is gonna be fine. There's always a next season.
