    Hey @Barry I thought of you when I heard this :):

    Durian Rider/30 bananas a day guy. www.durianrider.com

    He blabbers a bit, but from around 3:30-4:15 he makes the challenge that he'd put $50k on him beating anyone that is low carb/keto in a race up Mt. Washington.

    This is another strava ride he posted: http://app.strava.com/activities/131018593 I think it'd be more fun to beat him at the long game, ala this

    30 bananas a day, ughhhhhh. Even when I might be able to eat bananas in the right season they are way to sweet for me.

    Keep us posted if you hear of anyone taking him up on this.

    How about Everest or K2?

    I would LOVE to see someone do Everest Keto like the Sherpa's do.

    That sounds fun :) I think considering he's offering the loot, its his choice of venue and style, ala bicycle.

    I wonder if he'd agree to the same ride after both contenders fasted for a couple days first, and had no food throughout though...

    Sounds like a job for the Hof. (Wim Hof)

    Don't hassle the Hof :D

    I've heard of this guy before....actually I like him.... he's challenging the accepted norm

    while his diet is obviously stupid, I bet he has the rest of the dots connected

    yet again, its not what we eat, its how we live

    I have plenty of LCHF cyclists that would kick his ass... and if he wants to race me... it would have to be more than 5mins... maybe 5hrs

    Peter Attia has challenged him on a range of tasks, both physical and mental. He didn't accept.

    Chris Boardman was able to sustain 6.3 watts per kilo for a full hour! This silly blimp can only manage 5 minutes and thinks he is wonderful. Basically he has ZERO credibility and a similar IQ.

    Of course he wouldn't accept doing it in a fasted state. Harley's whole point is that fasting + ketosis is inferior to high carb strategies that he follows.

    Peter Attia is a post-graduate and a doctor. I believe Durianrider dropped out of school at 16. Do you think it would be a fair mental battle?

    To Clarify, I don't particularly like DurianRider; he is an arrogant, antagonising demonstration of a hyperbolic youtube view-seeker. Nonetheless, he has put a challenge out there and nobody has accepted. Instead, proponents of ketosis have just said something along the lines of "well I could beat him and I know others who could, but I won't/can't because [insert reason]".
  12. if he is paying the 50K i'd give it a shot, whats to lose?
