We Love Cycling , the online cycling magazine interviewed Axel and Andreas about their World Record and the BikingMan race series for 2018.
“Daring to start a bikepacking adventure is the key! Once you have the mindset, nothing can stop you. In 2010, Axel had never touched a bicycle. In 2011, during a work holiday, he took a touring bike on a self-supported ride in Central Europe, 1,200 km in 10 days, loaded with 40 kg of equipment. And he did this after only 2 months of easy training, on less than 100 kilometers per week. And in 2017 he rode with me the South American challenge; 10,600 km in less than 50 days without resting days.”
