TR2012 - Planning

TransRussia - there is still an increase of madness possible! :o)
For the year 2012 Manfred's cycling friend, the extreme-sportsman Alexey Boldarev, offered a new immense challenge:
A bicycle race over a distance of 3,000 kms!
The racing led across all climate zones of the northern half of the earth.
Manfred took part in this long-distance racing. It should be a hard test of the physical limits ...and should be adventure pure! :-)

Usually randonneurs do not admire beautiful sights around them. Runners and skiers even at a distance of 100 km go on the result and as a rule it does not matter whatever the surrounding landscape is.
Cyclists in this sense is more fortunate, because their distances are much longer, sights around are so beautiful and the results are quite different in sportive and emotional aspect.
To experience this personally, we kindly invite you to participate in the marathon Trans-Arkhangelsk-Dzhubga "Fortieth Meridian."
The route length of approximately 3,000 km running through all the climatic zones of Russia from the White Sea to the Black Sea, from the Pomeranian of the taiga to the subtropics, crossing the northern, central and southern parts of Russia in the immediate vicinity of the 40th meridians.
Challenging the space and yourself, you will be able to enjoy the boundless expanse of Russia and get a huge charge of vital energy, a lot of new experiences and great shape.
Style of movement can be individually selected by each party bearing the full responsibility for their own training, equipment and compliance with traffic regulations. It can be completely autonomous, and bound for days to any checkpoints.
It should be understood that it is not just a cycling trip but overcoming distance in the best possible sport mode. This is to test yourself, your abilities, the nature and strength of mind, no matter how high it may sound.
Even at a fixed time of the route, there can be a winner because the winner is anyone who has overcome this by way of his own physical power and will. And let the Black Sea will be the best award to winners.

Start = Archangelsk / 23 july
Finish = Dzhubga / 5 August
Distance = 3000 km
Time Limit = 14 days / 336 hours
