Global adventurer and cycling addict, Hrvoje Jurić, attepted a new guinness world record, circumventing the globe on an electric bike, ably supported by a very special twin campervan.
He left Zagreb on a sunny day at the begining of the June, headed to Irkutsk and then onto Vladivostok, Russia for arguably the toughest section of the trip (actually, this could be the toughest part of the first leg, indeed!). His companion, his trusted Giant Revolt E+, specially made for this project, has beed tested through all kind of conditions and gave Hrvoje confidence for 29 000 kilometers that await them. After Russia, he will traverse Australia, from Perth to Brisbane, and then tackle the US and Canada, All being well, Hrvoje will return later this year to Portugal and ride back to the Adria Mobil factory to see if he officially beat the world record.
“I DECIDED ON THE TWIN AS IT’S A REALLY ROBUST VEHICLE, NOT TOO BIG AND IT’S GOT THE CREDENTIALS TO CIRCUMVENT THE WORLD, INCLUDING SOME REALLY TOUGH STRETCHES BETWEEN EUROPE AND RUSSIA.“
ADRIA TWIN SGX FOR SPECIAL ADVENTURES. JURIC CHOSE AN ADRIA TWIN SGX TO FOLLOW HIM ON HIS CYCLING ADVENTURE. WHY?
“When it came to the best layout, actually many would have worked but clearly the new SGX with it’s super flexibile rear comparment is perfect. I can raise the bed to any level, and when it’s set to the high setting i can store my bike and all the equipment securely in the huge garage. The garage is fitted with durable materials and Adria added some custom freatures to help me keep all my equipment charged, which is a real life-saver”.
MY TWIN IS MY OFFICE AND MY HOME.
“This is how one day on the road looks like – get up early in the morning, prepare breakfast, check the bicycle, cycle over 300 km with short breaks for a lunch, charge batteries, take a nap, search for a place to sleep. And now imagine how much time I will save with SGX, since all listed I have in a campervan“.
“Get up early in the morning, prepare breakfast, cycle over 300 km with short breaks for a lunch, charge batteries, prepare diner, take a shower a go to sleep. And do it again over 100 times. With SGX all of that I’ll have at one place.“
