A Revenge to be Taken!

Michel did not have the good role in 2018, but this experience will certainly allow him to learn, to come back stronger.

Suffering from technical damage in the first days, Michel’s first Sun Trip ended with a U-turn when he crossed over to Ukraine and then abandoned a few hundred kilometers further.

The year after, Michel was part of the organizing team for the 2019 Sun Trip Tour, but the desire to get back on the road took over.

Michel will come and try his new bike on the Sun Trip France, before targeting Asia in 2021!

His Vision of the Sun Trip

“The Sun Trip is for me one of the last great adventures which remains nevertheless affordable to an ordinary man who dreams of extraordinary. The most difficult is to take the start, then there is only to roll and to reach the end of the Sun Trip as an illustrious candidate said in 2015. If in 2018 I took the start “to see landscapes”, I now return to meet the people who live in these landscapes. The Sun Trip has profoundly changed me and helped me to go spontaneously towards others, to help but now also to be helped. “
