The team of the 7 Summits Club passed a ski part of the route to the South Pole
Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club and guide the group, from Antarctica:
Today we flew from Union Glacier to the region of South Pole. We arrived at the mark of 50 km, where we were met by a ratrak (snowcat) with sledges, in which there were 13 bikes and 13 skis. Today we went skiing 15 km to the camp, which Artem set in advance (kitchen and all tents).
That is all right. It is cold, -30 degrees and wind. But members of the team say that in the North pole was much worse. Tomorrow we have 35 km by Bicycle to the Pole. Usually we go 40 minutes and then all collect and drink tea. With us there is a snowcat.
So, tomorrow we have to make a world record - to come to the South pole on two-wheeled bicycles. No one has done this before us. We're 13 people.
