Just in case you’re wondering, the Motorcycle Cannonball (a cross-continental rally ride on 100-year-old bikes) is now on Stage Eight, and a Canadian is in the running to finish first, sort of.
Right now, Canadian Byrne Bramwell is tied with 21 other riders for first overall. He’s riding a 1913 Henderson and has put in 1754 miles so far. But that will change as the ride goes on — the Cannonball has a very high attrition rate, and as the days rack up, competitors will start to slip back.
