Grace, from DotWatcher.cc, talks with me about the ultra racing scene, it’s growth, the difference between bikepacking and touring and the furore that surrounded Lael Wilcox Tour Divide participation.
Who is Grace Lambert-Smith?
Grace is the kind of rider who says she hates hills yet constantly finds herself at the top of them having created a route she thought was benign. No stranger to long-distance, you'll find her taking part in Audax UK events, cycle-touring around Europe and venturing around her local hills in the Peak District, UK.
Her 2019 goal is to ride Paris-Brest-Paris.
DotWatcher is the home for the best insight, analysis, and conversation from around the bikepacking community, published alongside everything needed to follow the action of the world’s biggest races.
Starting my year long bikepacking cycling journey from Sydney all the way back to London. Currently in Riding to Adelaide.
Follow along, share the journey and hit me up if you wanna go rubber side down on any part of the route!
