The world’s longest and toughest horse race, the 2016 Mongol Derby has seen the riders complete 500 km, which is the half-way point.
This race is a unique opportunity for riders to test their abilities and stamina as they cross Mongolia. “Yesterday ranked as one of the ten best days of my life,” says David Redvers from the UK who is part of the Qatar racing team.
So far the challenging ride has led to six riders retire and a couple of riders suffering injuries including a dislocated shoulder and suspected broken ribs.
