The book is published!

It has taken me about a year longer than I expected it to, but finally I have published the book I wrote about my experiences in the last X-Alps.  'Hanging in There' is a personal account, charting my experiences and recording the realities of this toughest of races. 

The book charts each day of the race, complete with a map of my track and photos from the race itself.  It is available on the kindle platform - meaning anyone can download and read it via the free kindle app on any PC, tablet or smartphone.  You can find the book on by clicking  here. Or go to your local Amazon site and search for 'Hanging in There'

Any money I make from selling the book will contribute a small amount towards the significant costs of competing in the 2013 race, so by purchasing the book you are supporting team GB.  But most of all I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.  The story simply needed to be told!


  1. I am really enjoying the book Jon can't put it down. I would like to see the route. The maps are a bit small on Kindle.
    Good luck for 2013

    1. Glad you are enjoying the book. We are working on getting interactive maps up here on the blog, it is just taking a bit longer than we thought. Will be available soon.

    2. Hi Danny,

      The interactive maps are now online on the book page:

      Best regards,
