All three of these men have sacrificed a lot of
time and resources jut to make it to the start line. They are racing for
the challenge and adventure primarily and Chris Culos is also raising
money for a cancer charity.
For these riders and their crews there will be no
fanfare at the starting line; just a quiet start near daybreak on the
shores of the Pacific.
Updates on their progress will be available on the
www.dailypeloton.com , the
Facebook and Twitter.

Colò and his crew and providing expanded coverage on his
progress. For a in depth look at the endurance, determination and
suffering of an ultra-endurance cyclist please follow our coverage. It
will be special. Guaranteed.
