Better known as a mountain and trail runner, when Donnie Campbell took up gravel cycling he started winning races and smashing FKTs. Donnie has been on the podcast twice, talking about the wild places he runs (Ep. 2) and setting a new record for the fastest self-propelled round of Scotland's "Munro" mountains (Ep. 35).
Now he explains his very different approach to bikepacking races - he doesn't sleep! Well OK, that's not strictly true, but he doesn't sleep much, even on the 2000km off-road French Divide, reckoned to be the hardest bikepacking race in Europe. We chatted in his kitchen.
