Tim Johnson’s Historic Fat Bike Winter Ascent 1

4,285' elevation gain, 19 below zero and brutal wind make Tim Johnson's Mt. Washington ascent one for the record books.

From Red Bull: "With 39 mph wind gusts and an elevation gain of 4,285 feet, Red Bull Athlete Tim Johnson becomes the first person to ever bike up Mt. Washington Auto Road in the winter, where his father watched him win the 2000 Summer hill climb 11 years ago. He rides a modified Fat Bike 7.2 miles in –19 degree temperatures against unpredictable conditions in the “World’s Worst Weather"."

Thank god he wore that aero lycra, definitely wouldn't have made it in baggier clothing. Also glad the team mechanic showed up with that pressure gauge to adjust tire pressure for him - that tool on his own would have weighed him down too much. Can't believe the Sherpa team didn't make him wear oxygen. I don't think that record will ever be attempted again, just too dangerous.
