Donegal's Jason Black has crossed the finish line at the end of one of the world's toughest races - a 1,050km plus cycle in the Middle East.

The Letterkenny adventurer - who became the first Donegal person to reach the summit of Mount Everest in 2013 - completed the race earlier this morning in Muscat, the capital of Oman.

At one stage he was in second position but a series of punctures cost him considerable time.

But he still managed to finish in seventh spot after going 50 hours!

Just after 11.00 am Irish time he posted the following message on social media:

Bastien Fontaine, who had been the race leader, was disqualified from the Bikingman Oman event.

The winner was Rodney Soncco who did 1,066km in 46 hours ands 17 minutes.

This was Black’s first attempt at a solo un-supported race.
