Congratulations to Omar Di Felice, the first athlete to reach Everest Base Camp on a bicycle in winter, after 1300 km and 40,000 meters of elevation gain.
We’re waiting for you Omar for a bit of well-earned rest in our hotels for cyclists!
His first words about the adventure:
<< After 1294 kilometers and 34586 meters of ascent I finally arrived here.
Just with the power of my legs and arms but, also, mind and heart.
Now from the top there’s nothing else than me, my joy the emotion and the pride for have cycled 19 days chasing a dream.
I, my bike, and in front of me the highest world’s mountain.
I finally reached “my Everest”. >>
