Should we tell him that he still has time to do something serious on grit, in anticipation of the inevitable UKC question, "But what has he done on.."?
I say good luck to the chap, and would love to watch the film when it comes out. And he probably has done an e4 on grit!!
Could've decided to swim from Rhode Island or somesuch. That'd be impressive...
What a great adventure this'll be. Every ounce of luck to him.

Good luck to him but it does seem like a bigger higher further circus. I'm planning a similar attempt using a unicycle and pogo stick....
Marshalling and feed stations may be a bit of a logistical nightmare?
Let's see if he manages to get past Slough without needing his stomach pumped. Though I'm told it's a lot cleaner these days!
Kazakhstan should be easy if he can negotiate the shipping lane near Tilbury without being sucked into the bilges of a container ship.
I REALLY worry about this man's health - swimming in the Thames is just insane!
Or a three legged hairy manx woman even with thighs like Mark Cavendish!
Yes, hard to beat Goran Kopp's effort. Altough he didn't do the swin, that seems considerably more impressive, seeing as he cycled there and back taking all his own kit with him.
Still good on him, I couldn't do it.
> seeing as he cycled there and back taking all his own kit with him.
Just imagine, though, getting to the top of Everest and your overriding thought being 'nuts - now I've got to cycle all the way back to Sweden'...
