I’m Not Stopping – Lael Wilcox Races the Navad 1000

Whatever goal you have set yourself for the year, pushing through and achieving it will always take a combination of training, preparation and old-school grit. With 1,000km to ride and 33,000m of vertical ascent across the Swiss Alps, the Navad 1000 is a brutal test that demands all of these qualities. Lael Wilcox takes it all in her stride, and is an amazing inspiration if you’re looking to find that all-important motivation to keep up with your 2019 ambitions.
