I'm sure you could apply Yogi Berra's quote to riding the Iron Butt.
"Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical."
I agree with you that all who finish that ride are incredible. The suffering they are enduring is huge and since you mention the TDF, former racer Andy Hampsten said that in cycling as opposed to sports like boxing, that the pain is all self inflicted. That, no doubt applies to the Iron Butt riders, too.
Leon will finish, bike willing.
