Robert Burnett of Denver, Colorado joined Ben to discuss his recent trip to Nepal to compete in the Yak Attack Mountain Bike Stage Race.

 

It's fair to say that Rob loves Nepal. He has traveled to Nepal several times and was looking for something different. The Yak Attack was certainly different.

 

The idea of racing the Yak Attack was born from a joke between friends. Soon after Rob put "his money where his mouth is" and signed up for the 2013 version, he was searching for a bike, training for the race, and planning for the bike trip of a lifetime.

 

Listen in as Rob gives a lot of great and interesting information about his preparation, travels, and racing the Yak Attack! He finished 7th overall!
