MACEDONIAN TO CROSS EUROPE ON HIS CYCLE!
We found out about this interesting Macedonian, his name is Delco Angelov. Delco is a Marathon cyclist. At the beginning in 1998 he started cycling to lose his weight, and he could not cycle more than 2 km a day but Delco persisted. He continued to train and his condition improved dramatically. In the year of 2000 he decided to cycle his first long distance marathon from his present home Tafers, Switzerland to his native city, Sveti Nikole in Macedonia. Completing the distance of 2.140 km. in only 7 days!
After four more years Delco decided to cycle his first extreme marathon, “Delco’s tour D’europe ‘04”. He managed to cycle 10.095 km. in 37 days, crossing 14 European countries! With that he set a new European recreational marathon cycling record.
This year Delco want’s to do it again! In attempt to setting a new European record in recreational marathon cycling he will cycle 16.102 km in 59 days which is planned for this spring/summer season.
We will keep you up to date about Delco and his adventure, in the meanwhile have a look at his website and at the map of his route.
MD: You may think he is crazy, we did too! But what a performance by this man! We think he is the best and we really hope he can set a new record and finish his tour. GOOD LUCK DELCO!
