Video: Getting Ready for WPER!

Filed under: Adventure Racing 

Team GearJunkie heads to South America and the Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race this week! People often ask about how we prepare for this event. Admittedly, it is a bit overwhelming. The WPER requires months of training, huge amounts of time preparing and packing gear, getting food ready for the event, and then crunching everything down — including a bike — to get it on a plane and fly across the world. This video, a lo-fi production filmed at my house, gives a peek inside some of the gear I will use this year in Chile + a look at the training regimen that has ruled my life over the past half-year as I’ve prepared my body and mind for the big race. —Stephen Regenold
