T3 India - - Man Vs Tech -

Is an ebike bet­ter than a reg­u­lar moun­tain bike for a big bikepack­ing race? Nick Odantzis takes the Wilier e806TRB eMTB, while Matt Or­ton will be strad­dling a Son­der Bro­ken Road. Us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of roads and bri­dle­ways, we’ll be trav­el­ling 100 kms in a day. There’s an el­e­ment of dan­ger, so we’re both car­ry­ing a Spot GEN3 tracker (`11,500, find­mespot. eu) to call in the emer­gency ser­vices, if need be. Luck­ily, Matt looks like a bear so we don’t need to worry about wolves.
