The pro riders taking part in Mountain Biking UK’s VooDoo Challenge have faced some tough adversaries this year, including a rock crawler, a marine, a fell runner, an urban commuter and the inhospitable terrain of the Moroccan desert.
In part 6 of the Challenge – the final in the series – professional stuntman Rob Jarman takes on the via ferrata route at Fleetwith Pike in the UK’s Lake District. He has to ascend it with his VooDoo Canzo dismantled and lashed to his rucksack, then freeride his way back down across the fells, through the quarry and down to Honister centre.
Sounds easy, right? Click on the video below to see how he got on:
About the VooDoo Challenge
During this series we have set different challenges for top riders – including VooDoo Cycles Rob Jarman – to try. Some of them have had a bit of culture and exploring, others a definite man vs the elements feel, and others are just downright bonkers. You can follow the antics in MBUK and here on BikeRadar.
You can read the full story about Rob Jarman’s challenge involving the Fleetwith Pike climb in issue 266 (August) of Mountain Biking UK.
