Red Bull Trans Siberian Extreme 2016

We are happy to support Eduard Fuchs as the main sponsor when he started the Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme!

Once again this year, RUSSIA Fachspedition is supporting Edi Fuchs, the Austrian driver in the heavily populated field of participants. Edi Fuchs takes up this challenge again as a solo driver and will therefore cover the entire 9,250 km from Moscow to Vladivostok on his own. An incredible challenge for body and mind! After the great 2nd place last year, there is only one goal for Edi Fuchs: victory!

In addition to our role as main sponsor, we also support the Eduard Fuchs team with our decades of experience in Russia and with all logistical challenges on his way to Vladivostok.

Stage 9 was certainly one of the hardest to contest in this race. It went from Krasnoyarsk over 1,100 km and more than 10,000 vertical meters to Irkutsk.

STAGE 8.

Red Bull Trans Siberian Extreme 2016

The Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme traverses almost all of Russia: start in Moscow – finish in Vladivostok.
9,250 kilometers, 14 stages, 24 days. This is the key data of the longest cycle race in the world – the Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme. With a stage length of 300 to 1,400 kilometers, the race is to be an even greater challenge than the “Tour de France”.
Alone with its unique sports concept, it outshines the longest race to date – the Race Across America – and a new chapter in ultra-cycling is opened.
The Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme (RBTSE) will start on July 5, 2016 in Moscow.
