Everything you need to know about Red Bull Romaniacs

Red Bull Romaniacs 2021 Finisher – here’s the full behind the scenes low down & lots of info you might not know on the vertical madness

I did it!!! I’m officially a Red Bull Romaniacs finisher…or should I say survivor? That was epic. I loved every second of it. Here is my behind the scenes low down on the whole event. I hope it enables you to learn a little more about how Romaniacs runs and some of the behind the scenes fun of becoming a Romaniacs finisher!

There is a lot to know about Romaniacs so I hope you enjoy. Let me know in the video comments:

My body…saying I’m proud of it would be an understatement. While I did have to push through some pain management for my hip it held up. Each morning, with good nutrition overnight, as much shut eye as possible, Compex deep tissue support and active collagen, my body felt ready for the day ahead [discounts below]. Day four was the biggest mind game for me as the hip pain was more intense but I wasn’t going to let it hold me back. See why this was so tough for me with my accident story here:

I used all the Jarvis tips learned the week before and I just focused on riding smoothly and consistently. I had very few falls but definitely a few heart skipping a beat moments of fear (particularly on the ridiculous finish line crowd pleasing obstacles 😱).

I wasn’t fast but I’m insanely delighted to say I actually ranked!! 57th place of 91 riders with a total riding time of 18h23m20s following the Garmin GPS route of vertical madness!

Time to plot a new ridiculous challenge 🤪

Please note that due to Red Bull Media licencing there is no race footage in this video – they send me a legal threat if I recorded anything – all riding footage was captures on ‘similar’ terrain the week before with Jarvis Signature Tours Romania.
