Famous traveller Fyodor Konyukhov shows great interest in Expedition Trophy

06.12.2005 15:50

Well, no wonder. For such a project has never existed either in Russia, or the rest of the world. To drive through 16 thousand kilometers of winter roads within the track corridor of 800 km is a job for true adventurers only.

At the present moment we possess the information that famous Russian traveller Fyodor Konyukhov will probably become a member of one of the teams, being formed now. The Organizers of Expedition-Trophy 2006 will be glad to see the legendary countryman among the participants of the race.

Allow us to remind you, that Fyodor Konyukhov has already set such world records as crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a single row-boat for 46 days, and the best 24-hour passage in the same boat 110 miles. Besides, he overcame the Atlantic Ocean in a twin-hull boat within 9 days and 11 hours.

Fyodor Konyukhov was the first, and according to the 2005 data, the only person in the world who reached the five poles of our planet:

  • The North Pole (3 times);
  • The South Pole;
  • The pole of relative inaccessibility in the Arctic Ocean;
  • Mount Everest  (pole of  altitude);
  • Cape Horn (pole of yachtsmen).

He was the first Russian, who succeeded in performing the Big Helmet program.
