Ben Foster Everesting Challenge

Attempting the Everesting Record – By Ben Foster, SoCalCycling.com Team

2020 has been a tough year for everyone, and bike racing has been no exception. With the racing season effectively canceled in the US, and having lost last years’ season to a broken femur I was looking for something to train for and challenge myself. Everesting has been something I’ve contemplated doing for a bunch of years now since I love climbing and love pushing my limits but the ebb and flow of rest, training and racing never felt like […]
