A new extreme adventure of ultra cycling is starting now and Omar Di Felice is the protagonist
A new extreme adventure is starting now and Omar Di Felice is the protagonist:
"This is I'm finally ready to leave: I'll try to cross LADAKH, one of the most remote and highest world’s region through Himalayan mountains and glaciers, a high altitude plateau with passes over 5000 meters above sea level. In winter. An adventure that puts its roots in these last months of deep solitude and reflection. About fear and tears, about training and personal rediscovery. About an intimate dialogue with myself. It was born from the great lesson learned in Antarctica and exactly as a stepping stone towards the second attempt. It was born in these days, among the melancholy sunsets along the Tyrrhenian Sea, with the winter resisting with all its strength to a spring that is pawing to anticipate its arrival.
Because if "SOLO" is an ultracycling mode in which you cycle without support or assistance, "ALONE" is a more intimate and personal state. And then in a few days I will be "Alone in Ladakh". From Manali to Leh, up to the top of Khardung La, over 5300 meters on the sea level after crossing depopulated villages in winter, sleeping in tents or in the monasteries of this region called "the Little Tibet of India", defending myself from cold (temperatures down to -30°C are expected during this particularly generous season of snow)".
Omar will face this new challange with the support of our supplements.
