    A test of man and machine

    Together with Cyril Despres, Mike was tasked with testing the Norden 901 in the harsh Icelandic landscape. Just as important, however, was to determine whether it delivered the full sensory experience an explorer of his stature expects. 

    “In the north, you have to be able to adapt quickly to the environment, something the Norden was able to do effortlessly as we crossed multiple terrains.”

    “Dream it, plan it, do it, is the way I do all my expeditions.”

    Why adventure?

     

    When extraordinary is ordinary

    Mike is a person who gets inspired by any idea that sounds exciting. And the moment his mind is excited, the impossible no longer exists. Exploring is as ordinary to him as a 9 to 5 job is for someone else. It is simply what he loves doing and has always done. To have the freedom to get out there and discover more about himself allows him to be the best person he can be.

    “If you're still on planet Earth, you're not lost. There is always something to guide you.”

    “I knew the bike could do it, it was just me who had to figure out how to do it.”

    Why travel
    on two wheels

    A new awakening

    On this journey, Mike discovered a form of adventure that has changed the way he thinks about travel. Exploring on two wheels is what anybody in the world can do, and adding a little speed even enhances the overall experience. A person simply needs to be inspired and get out there.  

    “I'm not afraid to go into the unknown. You will be surprised what you are capable of and what you discover about yourself along the way.”
