    An undiluted challenge for those who recognise adventure even without a hashtag
    Just an expedition race. It shouldn’t change your life – it should confirm that you are still committed to living your life
    Out there for those who don’t need to be convinced

    For the masses – those who Vasbyt are a bit tougher, a bit rougher, slightly more capable
