Rebecca Romero is going to do LE to JoG non-stop on a tandem with James Cracknell, why? publicity, money or what!
On a more mundane note if it is genuinely non-stop how will they cope with the demands of nature?
Bit of background which some of you might not know...
Rebecca was a very successful rower prior to getting involved in track riding. She won a silver medal in Athens in a rowing boat. James and her rowed at the same club for a number of years - so they are at least colleagues and probably good friends.
James has been doing stuff like this for the last few years - rowing across the Atlantic, racing to the South Pole... so it's just another one of those things.
