Chasing the Ghost Race across America

Chasing the Ghost is a film made by Craig Bingham with the purpose to inspire. And it does just that. You do not need to be a cyclist to find inspiration in this wonderfully crafted film. The film is the story of two teams (USA and GB), two fierce rivals that come together forming “Allied Forces” to take on the challenge of cycling 3000 miles across America in less than 5days 5hours 5mins to set a new world record. With the goal to use the record and show their adventure as a platform to raise awareness and funding for Help for Heroes and Woundered Warriors. Sit back and enjoy! The project photography by Craig Bingham is also worth a visit.

He completed the run, self-supported, in amazing time of 6h57min! · · · ◊ ◊ ◊ · · · [br top=”10″]
