When you are an organizer of ultracycling events, as much as you are passionate about cycling, the desire to pedal is never far away and the desire to live the experience offered to all participants had been itching for a long time.
Until then, the imperatives of the organization had always been able to extinguish this desire, but with the arrival of the Brazilian stage, delegated to our friend and race director on site Vinicius, the temptation was irrepressible.
Thus, we found Axel on the starting line, for his “first BikingMan(!)”, with in front of him 1,000km to cover through the Atlantic forests of Brazil, almost half of which on track and cobblestones.
On the finishline, after a good game of poker with the Colombian Julian, Axel obtains a good 5th place and the joy of having experienced and completed his first BikingMan, this time on the bike.
