It is with great emotion that Michael Polák arrived this morning in Guangzhou (Canton), crowning this incredible Sun Trip 2018 Edition!
The Czech adventurer was welcomed by 5 Suntrippers and Project Manager Angélique Galvaing under the admiring eyes of a Chinese crowd on the arrival site, on this official holiday.
With as much enthusiasm as for the first, that the organizing team welcomed the last of its courageous participants. Let us remind you that Michael made bold route choices in the European mountains and the Chinese highlands, and that he rode on a totally custom crafted bike charging 100% with solar energy! Hats on him!
In addition, his performance and his communication efforts make him one of the participants who will be honored by the Jury Prize to be unveiled later today.
The sun is setting officially today on The Sun Trip 2018 after an adventure lasting 106 days. On 36 participants that departed, 24 managed to reach the finish line, 13 of them riding only on solar energy. There were no major accident and the adventure spread its joy all along its 12,000 km. It’s promising!
Big thanks to all Sun Trip followers and fans, your support increased our will at least tenfold!
We’ll soon be in touch for more Adventures!
