Connor McGregor has decided to take a step out of the octagon and onto the ocean as he prepares to race alongside ex-Olympian, Princess Charlene of Monaco. The race was organized by the Princess Charlene foundation, in order to bring awareness for water safety; the race will take place September 12-13. Princess Charlene and McGregor will be riding their Schiller water bikes over a distance of 180 kilometers with two other teammates.
The athletes will be cycling on their Schiller water bikes from Corsica to Monaco in the name of charity – and maybe for some bragging rights. The Princess Charlene foundation was formed in 2012, and they aim to raise awareness of water safety.
Photos have been surfacing of the pair on their Schiller water bikes as they practice for their upcoming race. McGregor, 32, has been posting some action shots of him practicing for the upcoming race.
On August 23rd the Princess Charlene Foundation confirmed that McGregor and Princess Charlene will be racing alongside Yannik Agnel, a two time Olympic gold medalist, and David Tanner, an Australian racing cyclist.
These four world renowned athletes will be taking turns traveling a distance of 180km over a 24 hour period. McGregor, Agnel, Princess Charlene and Tanner will be relaying against another team of four. The race for charity will finish up at the Monaco Yacht Club.
