Mongol Derby 2017 Rider Invitation
Thanks for your patience after the delay getting the registration gubbins set up for next year’s race. We’re very pleased to confirm that you’ve been offered a spot on the 2017 edition of the world’s longest and toughest horse race. Congratulations, you must be made of stern stuff.
After having fallen into a bit of a low spot in my life (the low after a massive high from my previous epic long distance ride. Check out the past Adventure tab for more info) I decided I needed to make a big change in my life. I needed somthing to re-empower myself. So I decided what better way of doing this than entering the worlds longest and toughest horse race, I didn’t really think all that much of it as I had very little hope that I would be accepted. But after filling out an applications and a phone interview it didn’t take to long before I was sent my Rider Invitation. As I read my invitation my body started to fill with immense fear and adrenaline, I was shaking and my knees started to feel weak. I then played this video which was attached to the invitation, my heart started to race and I new that I was going to do what ever it took to get me to that start line, I just want to have a shot at it, I don’t mind if I don’t win I just want to try my absolute best get myself across that finish line. Do I have what it takes?
