Enduro racer Rob Lee is well known in the UK mountain bike scene for his victories in races like Sleepless in the Saddle, Bontrager Torchbearer 24-hour, 24 Hours of Adrenalin Solo World Championships and many more. On the back of this he’s penned a book, Endurance Within. But he needs your help to get it published.
“I first started work on Endurance Within in the hope of understanding the void that exists between the reality of my life, my riding, and me as a person, and the perception that others have,” says Rob. Through it’s inception I found the key to changing from the person I was when I started, to the person I had always wanted to be. When I read it back to myself now I find I am inspired, yet somewhat appauled, to find that the act of putting it down on paper was almost as evolutionary as the events it describes.”
In an unusual publishing twist, Rob has chosen to use, Crowdfunding, a social solution to funding a project, to put his book into print. Rob tells us the reason why he’s made this decision: “After some debate and consideration I have decided that if it is to be published then I would like it to be as a limited edition.”
“…I’m under no illusion that endurance mountain biking is a small niche market within the broader spectrum of world cycling. I have decided to let the question of supply be answered by the audience by allowing the final push of the production button to sit under their hands,” he continues.
So, it’s now over to you. If enough funding is offered through Crowdfunding, then the book goes ahead. If you want to see the book published, simply head to www.crowdfunder.co.uk and invest.
