Polish cyclist Valerian Romanovsky is going to travel 1000 kilometers without stopping in the winter in Yakutia and set a personal record, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports with the reference to TASS.
“We will go to the coldest place on Earth, to the village of Oymyakon, where people live in Yakutia. My plan is to ride a bicycle from there to Yakutsk and back along the Kolyma tract. I would like to overcome this distance without any support, help, use of the premises,” told the cyclist.
The expedition may take five to six days.
“Our project is not only about sports, it is also about survival in difficult conditions. In addition to physical activity, I will have to withstand these conditions. I will not have any products, warm drink. I’ll eat everything cold,” added Romanovsky.
According to the agency, the cyclist and his team had already been in Yakutia in 2017. Extreme sportsmen set a record in cycling in Oymyakon.
