Local cycling world champion, Manorcunningham man Joe Barr has this week set off on the 3000-mile Race Across America.

Joe is the world 500m endurance record holder.

Joe completed the 3000 miles in 11 days on his last attempt but believes that this time, with the additional experience and a new bike and new equipment, he can complete the course in 9 days – that’s averaging 333 miles per day.

Joe’s progress can be followed on the Facebook page ‘Team Joe Barr’.
