    Although it wasn't officially the end of a stage, Mark asserts that riding into Lahore certainly felt like one! Our TV crew flew out to meet up with him and shot these great photos. Check that beard!

  • Ezurum, Turkey

    Ezurum, Turkey

    Mark's still in Turkey and having a ball, but all those days of riding in dust and lorry fumes have taken their toll and so he was finally forced to make a brave decision...sleep in a hotel for a night and have a shower!

  • Paris: The Start Line!


    Mark began (and will end) his epic journey in Paris and if you're going to do it in Paris, you might as well start from the Champs Elysees. In 210 days he'll hopefully be back again...

  • Filming and MORE Tests In Around Loch Fyne

    Mark undergoing a test

    The day in the lab was valuable because all of the conditions could be controlled, however, we obviously also needed some more 'real world' results, so we went up to Loch Fyne for some field tests.

  • Tests at Glasgow University

    Mark undergoing a test

    Due to the extreme nature of Mark's journey, part of his support team comes in the form of Dr Niall McFarlane, a sports scientist at Glasgow Uni. On this day, we spent time in the lab, testing Mark's body in all kinds of colourful ways.
