Alex Roy: Cannonballer/True American Man
The real reason to post about Lelouch’s famous run is because of this man, Alex Roy. He and his copilot did what many thought was impossible, drive 2,795 miles from NYC to Cali in under 32 hours and 7 minutes. The gear?
Twenty packs of Nat Sherman Classic Light cigarettes, check. Breath mints, check. Glucose and guarana, Visine and riboflavin, Gatorade and Red Bull, mail-order porta-pissoir bags of quick-hardening gel, check.
Oh and add in a heavily customized BMW E90 M5 with spy gear to monitor cops and a watch plane to scout out the traffic and road conditions. Also two years of planning to beat a 22 year standing record. We, men that is, tip our hats to you Alex Roy.
