This is an open casting call. We’re looking for five challengers to participate in an ATB-themed reality TV Game show. If selected we’ll build you the Ultimate ATB—based on your specs; choose wisely!— and fly you to a secret, rugged and remote location somewhere in North America where you and four other challengers will be given the opportunity to survive the World’s Most Challenging ATB Route ever imagined. If you successfully complete the route in less than 18 hours you will win your Ultimate ATB and fly home a legend. If you care deeply about adventure and love cyclo-overlanding, then we want you!
We want you, We don't care how fast you are. We don't care how slow you are. We don't care what you look like. We don't care what you smell like. We don't care what you sound like. All we care about is that you complete the challenge.
Do you care deeply for adventure? Are you ready to experience the world's most demanding, challenging, and awe inspiring cyclo-overland route?
Epic distances and glorious speeds are cute but sometimes supertucking just doesn't cut it. Hold my line? No, you hold your line bro.
The knobby pleasures of mountain biking are vast and glorious. Gnarly consequences, exposure, threading the needle between gravity bullies and marathon junkies on groomer single track. But what about hike-a-bikes, what about river fording, and on demand top roping?
On its own it's really boring, really long and really dusty—a time trial through a sea of former athletes and monotonous landscapes.
Old-timers call it underbiking. Basics call it quiver-killing. Lord of the Rings fans call it One Bike To Rule Them All. This, my friends, is A-T-B.
