    It's really mind blowing the things that can go wrong with these challenges. First you have the training that is required to achieve such feats. And then you have to navigate and support team.
    And you finally get out there and all you wanna do is 5th gear ,full steam ahead. That has to be difficult knowing when to back off and when to turn it on.
    As we know that rock looks steady but it's not there ya go sprained Ankle.
