In 2017, I set off in Cabo da Roca, Portugal to set two World Records: first the fastest cycling across Europe and second across Eurasia. Six weeks into the unsupported challenge, I was sick, hungry and miserable in the middle of the Siberian wilderness whilst a snowstorm was making my life difficult. Despite this, I continued pushing my bike and averaged over 250 km across Far Eastern Russia. I arrived in Vladivostok after 64 days – having cycled 14.331 km and setting two new World Records.
Since then I have changed my career to pursue adventures full time. In 2018, I undertook the toughest cycling challenge possible, an unsupported record ride of the legendary Panamericana. Despite constant headwinds, the high mountain passes of the Andes and a constant struggle, I completed the 23.000 km ride in 98 days – taking alomst a month off the prior record.
In 2019, I completed my dream of cycling the three big continental crossing by riding from Cape North (Norway) to Cape Town. Despite severe food poisoning, violent riots, dehydration and tremendous logistical challenges, I arrived in Cape Town after 72 days – a month faster than the prior record.
Currently I’m training hard for a new World Record attempt in 2020 – it’s going to be further, faster and tougher than anything I have done before.
