There aren’t many riders out there that started their MTB career with a 24 hour race as their first event. We’d guess that might have something to do with the fact that Aaron Kent went on to ride some grueling endurance events like Paris Brest Paris and the Tour Divide. What’s more impressive is that Aaron did most of these events with very little previous experience, and found some interesting sources of inspiration along the way…

Episode 38: Aaron Kent joins us this week to recap his experience on Tour Divide 2015. We covered his history with 24 hour races before, then his training, planning, stories from the Divide, as well as his life-changing takeaways from the event. If you need a dose of inspiration, this episode is for you.
