Paddy Woods | 51 | Ireland
Riding experience: Paddy had retired from racing for over 30 years when he took it up again in 2012 and got his amateur riding licence. He rode in the 2012 Kidney Foundation Charity Race at the Punchestown National Hunt Festival and is a Mongol Derby 2013 Veteran.
Outdoor/Survival Experience: I didn't finish in 2013 because of injury and other things and the Mongol Derby is like an itch I couldn't scratch so that's why I am back.
After a thirty-year break I took out my amateur riding license in 2012 and I ride in charity /amateur races. Knowing what I know about the race I sometimes question myself why would I want to go back!.
