Cycling fans will be familiar with Rupert Guinness, a veteran sports journalist who’s as famous for his Hawaiian shirts as he is for covering 30 Tours de France. If you listened to the CyclingTips podcast during the 2018 Tour de France, you would have heard plenty of great stories and insight from Rupert.


Beyond his reporting, Rupert’s also an athlete in his own right — he’s a former elite lightweight rower, an Ironman triathlete and, in the past couple years, an ultraendurance cyclist. He’s ridden in both the first two editions of the Indian Pacific Wheel Race, and it’s those rides that are the subject of his latest book, ‘Overlander: One Man’s Epic Race to Cross Australia’. 




Bruce Ashford is a Head & Neck Surgeon and is on the Board of Beyond Five. He lives in Wollongong and enjoys the challenge of the undulating climbs of the Illawarra.


He has done plenty of painfully long and slow rides, including multiple L’etape’s, Pollie Pedal and trips across Europe. He happily confirmed to us that he will be the slowest rider on the day, until lunch is served, at which time he will definitely be wearing the Green Jersey. 



Trevor Gardner has a day job in anaesthetics, retrieval medicine and military medicine. Trevor has worked alongside Bruce both in the military and in head and neck cancer surgery. He is an enthusiastic supporter of Beyond Five and an advocate for advancing the care of patients with head and neck cancer.


A one time competitive hang glider pilot, expedition sea kayaker, Trevor returned to cycling in 2014 with a mountain bike tour of Siciliy. Since then he has been regularly cycling, particularly enjoying small group cycling in the Dolomites. In August, Trevor will compete in the 2nd Silk Road Mountain Race in Kyrgyzstan. There may be some stories to tell after the 1670km, 26,000m climb unsupported bike packing event.
