Mike Hall killed in car crash during the Indian Pacific Wheel Race.


Mike Hall (June 4, 1981 - March 31, 2017) second from left. 

Mike was a British endurance cyclist that traveled the world doing what he loved, riding very long distances on his bike.

In 2012 he won the inaugural World Cycle Race. In 2013 and 2016 he won the Tour Divide ultra-endurance mountain bike

race across the Rockies from Canada south to US/Mexico border. In 2014 he won the inaugural Trans Am Bike Race, a

self supported road race from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic Coast of the USA. From 2013 he was the principal organiser

of the Transcontinental Race, an event similar to the TransAm Race, but in Europe.

Mike was killed in a collision with a car during the Indian Pacific Wheel Race in Australia, on March 31 2017. The collision 

occurred in the Monaro Highway on the outskirts of Canberra at approximately 6:20 am. The race organisers decided to cancel the race.

Mike was an inspiration to many people around the world, whether you followed his many feats via Tour Tracker on line, or read

the numerous articles written about him. In person he was a very humble soul, always a listener and never hesitant to offer up

a smile.

Rest in Peace Mike Hall the cycling community you've bonded with will continue to be "Inspired to Ride" in your honor.
