Didn't want it to end
23 December 2019 | by lachlanholswichSee all my reviews

As a person with a growing interest in the Cannonball my jaw was on the ground the entire time. The mixture of footage from Alex and the older runs was amazing. Showing the preparation and skill involved was eye opening and has made my interest in the record even bigger. If you haven't watched this already, you absolutely must.
