  • - It's hot as hell.

  • I really wish I bought some Twinkies.

  • I know it's gonna take super long for them to dry

  • and I can't do this without those.

  • I really want to finish this. (sighs)

  • (wind howling)

  • What's up guys, I'm Q

  • and today I'm going to be ever Everesting

  • with zero practice.

  • So, Everesting is this crazy physical fitness challenge

  • where you choose one hill

  • and you either run, bike or virtually run or bike

  • the height of Mount Everest.

  • I'm decently fit, so, I feel like I might have

  • a chance to do this.

  • So, I'm gonna give you guys a quick walkthrough of my setup

  • 'cause I got a lot going on here.

  • All right so, this is the Kickr Climb.

  • It's an indoor grade simulator

  • and it's pretty much connected by Bluetooth to the game.

  • And it's going to allow my bike to have

  • the same gradient happening in the game.

  • This bike is from Canyon.

  • You can actually take the wheels on or off

  • and connect it for indoor riding or for outdoor riding.

  • And lastly is a Kickr Smart Trainer

  • and that's gonna be able to track

  • how hard I'm actually pushing

  • to get to this Everest attempt.

  • (wind billowing)

  • Alright so, I chose to do virtual Everesting

  • inside of the Zwift app.

  • The hill, I chose just call it Epic KOM Forward.

  • I have to do this hill 22 times

  • to successfully complete my Everest attempt.

  • I just realized that I forgot to change my avatar

  • so, I'm like a 30 year old white guy.

  • (upbeat chimes)

  • I'm about 47 minutes in, about 1035 feet.

  • So, just got 28,000 more to go,

  • how hard can it be?

  • So, I just finished my first hill,

  • right now I'm on my first descent.

  • So, my guy's just going by himself, doing his thing.

  • I'm gonna grab a quick bite to eat right now

  • just refuel and get right back into it.

  • So, I feel like I can definitely do this.

  • Alright I'm about 2000 feet in,

  • been riding for about an hour and 30 minutes

  • including the start off.

  • Yeah I've just started to realize

  • I'm gonna be here for awhile.

  • Ooh, there we go

  • and I was five minutes faster, surprisingly.

  • So, what happened here is that I finished hill number two

  • and I did not know how to do a U-turn.

  • So, I ended up going down the descent for Epic KOM Forward

  • instead of turning it back around.

  • But to get back to where I had to go,

  • I had to go up Epic KOM Reverse,

  • which had an average gradient

  • that was way higher than the Forward.

  • I don't know what to do.

  • An early mistake, I will not make that again.

  • Gonna ask them a friends join me

  • from this Saris Team, just some people to talk to

  • so I won't be so lonely on this.

  • - How are you feeling?

  • You're a few hours in. - So, I feel good.

  • This is my first time going this far, for this long.

  • Kind of happy I went on this in reverse,

  • 'cause I'm showing me like, okay, I got this.

  • Like, you know, once we get to like eight

  • nine, 10 hours, just like, do you want to finish it?

  • Or do you not want to finish it?

  • Right now, I'm saying, yeah, but who knows

  • once you get there. (laughing)

  • - It'll be mind over matter,

  • especially at some point

  • where it's not so much about fitness,

  • it's about how determined are you?

  • - You'll have bad moments and you'll have good moments.

  • If you're in a tough spot on one of the climbs,

  • just get some food down and the next time up will be better.

  • - You guys think I got a chance?

  • - I think you got it.

  • You sound like your head's in the right space,

  • which is everything.

  • - Yeah, that's like half the battle right?

  • - You're Quinton, you're kind of crazy.

  • I want to be honest.

  • - Yeah, Saris Team,

  • shout out to those guys, man.

  • (wind howling)

  • I noticed during this first session

  • that my neck started to hurt,

  • so it's definitely some I gotta like

  • watch for going forward.

  • Eat my food very quick, drink a little bit of Gatorade,

  • you know, and just try to refuel a little bit.

  • I might even take a shower yet,

  • but you know, whatever, I like washed off a little bit,

  • a little bit refreshed.

  • Riding with the Saris Team was dope.

  • They were great.

  • They were very encouraging.

  • They gave me some good tips.

  • Definitely gotta make sure I'm eating enough,

  • staying hydrated, but I'm ready to go.

  • Something to eat, get back to it.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Yo, this got real.

  • I'm feeling my first cramp coming right now.

  • I didn't think it was gonna come down early,

  • but I'm cramping right here.

  • Oh, I gotta grab a banana right now.

  • It's clearly in dark out here.

  • Another thing, I gotta turn this fan back on.

  • I think I'm doing a pretty good job.

  • Staying in fueled and hydrated.

  • Alright, final stretch.

  • At eight, doing good.

  • I really wish I got some Twinkies.

  • Like, that's really one of my favorite snacks.

  • I heard they were vegan too.

  • Oh no, that's Oreos.

  • Are Oreos vegan?

  • (wind blowing)

  • (dramatic music)

  • So I'm on break right now.

  • I hopped in the shower real quick.

  • I got bolognaise veggie pasta

  • and also got this heating pad on my butt

  • 'cause it hurts really bad.

  • I've tried to wash my bottom things,

  • but my washer stopped like halfway

  • and just was filled with water.

  • So now it's going to take super long for them to dry

  • and I can't do this without those.

  • So we'll see what happens.

  • We'll still try to finish.

  • (aerosol spraying)

  • (dramatic classical music)

  • Definitely a little bit more difficult to eat.

  • I'm looking at where I'm at,

  • how much further I gotta go,

  • but it's super late.

  • This bike is hella loud.

  • 10, a quick, quick break.

  • I'm not gonna get off the bike though.

  • We ain't got time for that.

  • It's like 5:00 AM right now.

  • You know, man, I'm just like,

  • I really don't think I can go anymore.

  • I just can't do it.

  • Like I really want to keep going.

  • Part of me just feels like I can do this, but.

  • I don't know what it is, but I just do not have the energy.

  • But I'm just like, I'll sit for a second,

  • drink some water, drink some Gatorade,

  • just try to like get myself together,

  • but fucking feel it in like 30, 45 minutes,

  • I'll just call it quits.

  • I've never been as worn out before

  • in my entire life.

  • I can't lie, I definitely feel pretty defeated.

  • I feel like I put my best effort towards it

  • and I'm honestly, I think if those pants

  • didn't get stuck in a washing machine,

  • I honestly felt like I would've gotten closer.

  • It kinda sucks, but yeah I'll just eat this food

  • and hopefully I'll feel better later.

  • Impossible breakfast sandwich, that might cheer me up.

  • - Quinton, wake up.

  • Just wanted to let you know how proud I am of you.

  • That was an amazing ride for a first attempt.

  • I can't believe that you did that,

  • but then again, I can, you do all things well

  • and you'll continue to do things well.

  • What's this I'm hearing about your washing machine blew up?

  • I can't take this.

  • - Hey Quinton, congrats on the ride, man.

  • That was a really incredible attempt

  • and virtual Everesting, Everesting in general, is no joke.

  • I remember riding with you at night

  • and getting up in the morning the next day

  • and seeing that you were still on there and still going,

  • but just wanted to give you a shout out and some kudos.

  • So nice, nice work, man, ride on.

  • - So I guess things aren't that bad after all.

  • Like we didn't finish it,

  • but everybody still got my back.

  • Yeah, this was fun, this is a good experience

  • and I'm just so happy I did it.

  • Hopefully I can try it again,

  • 'cause I really think I can get this done.

  • So we'll see.

  • (upbeat music)

- It's hot as hell.
