    Yes, I don't think its feasible on MTB. Who knows there might be some iron legs participating.
    Need to check out the route from a PC.

    Excellent to see. Being a cyclist myself, though not such an level, but I can proudly say I've done numerous hill climbs ranging from 40 to 45 Kms where the 25 KMS is nothing but steep uphill. Great to see xBhp's initiatives for 0 HP fellas too. Kudos.

    Cheers!

    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    I wish I could compete, my best so far is 100kms 4 and a half hours in 38 degrees heat on NH37, with no stop and with only half liter of water consumed, (I ate before going and had a lot of water too though) on a Hero Royale bicycle (Raleigh Roadstar clone). For me, it's not about winning or losing, just about having a ball.
