Extreme athlete and adventure seeker Patrick Sweeney lives by a simple philosophy: if you're not scaring yourself at least once a month, you're not living. In this 5-webisode series, Patrick competes in the longest, coldest ultra endurance event in the world, the Iditarod Trail Invitational. Retracing the famous dog sled route, Patrick races his fat bike 350-miles across Alaska in -30 degree temperatures, unsupported in the dead of winter.
In this episode Patrick is fighting tire pressure problems as he goes through the final days of race prep in Alaska. Studded tires aren't quite as hearty as you might think. Once he's got everything sorted he heads out into the tundra and taiga only to have what might be a race/life ending fall on the first day.
