Michal Jon (Team Captain)
“I did a three-year around the world non-stop unsupported bicycle tour with my wife (2002-2005; 43,000 miles; 34 countries; all 7 continents).
I have written 7 books about bicycle touring, including a European bicycle routes guide book. I have also written numerous articles for various Czech bicycle and travel magazines. I did two Trans-American unsupported rides - in 2004 I cycled the northern route from Seward, Alaska to New York City (5,900 miles; 110 days); in 2009 I cycled the southern route from Los Angeles, California to Miami, Florida (4,400 miles; 65 days) - I suppose my RAAM time will be faster than those :-) ”
