Dave Buchanan

Guinness World Record Holder

In 2011, mountainbiker Dave Buchanan achieved a legendary status as he completed a non-stop race 571 km (355 miles) between Cardiff, Wales, and Caer,narfon, UK, in less than 48 hours. This effort made him Guinness World Record™ holder (”The greatest distance achieved on a mountain bike in 48hrs”). After the 48-hour mark, Buchanan continued his off-road cycling so as to complete a trek from Cardiff to Caernarfon back to Cardiff that covered 721 km (448 miles) across more than 59 hours.

”On my mountain bike, I need to be sure that the equipment I use will aid my training, racing, recovery and trailblazing activities and commitments. It also needs to last as long as I do on my rides in some of the toughest environments known to cycling. This is why I use Rehband Compression garments. They keep my body feeling fresh, smelling fresh and cycling for long periods without aches or pains. Even lactate accumulates much later. Without Rehband, I seriously doubt if I could have completed my 59hr and 36minute non-stop mountain bike ride in which I covered 721km and climbed 22300m through Wales’ toughest countryside.”
