Jacob | Opera House | 5471 km – Finished!
The man, the myth, the legend – Jacob Fryatt.
Better known to the dot watchers as ‘
I don’t think I’ve met anyone that’s so meticulous in everything they do, in all aspects of life. He’s planned, calculated and methodically carries out his day doing what needs to be done. Including in IPWR!
Jacob, I take my hat off to you. I wish it was me finishing, but, I’m stuck in Lavers Hill with a broken rear spoke! I watched the LIVE from the Opera House though, the guys from Taree did a superb job in getting down to showcase to the world not only your finish but what a champion bloke you are.
I hope to see you in Sydney when I arrive and we can dip the wheels together, but understand other commitments may come into play. Cheers man for experiencing this epic race somewhat with me (at least until the start line anyway!) and it’s something we will look back on for a long time to come. We always knew you would ride away at some point, it just happened fairly early and you never slowed down!

Those at the Opera House or that were watching the live stream were privy to a Jacob debriefing and ride interview. We’re putting together a Q & A session for Jacob, so if you have any questions, let us know!
In the meantime, here is part of what he had to say on the
Family, what it all means when you have someone to support your dreams.
