Jan Zdansky Azub Fat-Tris Expedition

Jan Zdansky Azub Fat-Tris Expedition 07

Jan Žďánský is pedaling a tricycle across a long and challenging frozen lake in Russia, on his Baikal expedition. He is riding the new Azub FAT-Tris prototype. As long as there is cell phone service, Jan is uploading recent photos to the Azub Facebook page HERE. He expected to ride on the ice mostly, but as there are some parts of the Baikal lake not frozen, he had to change his route and is now riding in the snow with his wheels being in it by 3 to 10 cm which makes is very hard or even impossible to pedal. In combination with almost no recumbent training before this tough expedition, his muscles are suffering a bit so far.
