Long story short, I was lucky enough to get to North Cape safe and sound, in 12 days and 12 hours. Quite an interesting ride I was asked to sum up in three sentences by our friends at Alba Optics, while I'm working on a proper report."The North Cape 4000 was definitely the experience of a lifetime and I’m so happy I decided to start in the end, despite all the troubles and uncertainties. After taking the leap you enter a bubble and you’re not able to think about much more than riding, eating and sleeping. Repeat it until you reach the North Cape!Crossing Europe this way was great, because you see things quite fast but you’ve a lot of time to think about the cultures you meet and everything that crosses your path. Before getting to Finland – which is soooo long that took four days to be passed – you basically cross a border a day. From the morning to the evening everything changes: landscapes, languages, people, rules. Even currency, sometimes. It’s a mix of inputs that you slowly process after the end of the event and definitely helps you widen your perspectives on your place in the World.There are ups and downs, sunny days and rainy days, there’s tailwind (not that much) and headwind (way, way more of course). You live everything much more intensely than usual because of your mood, your mental and your physical conditions. All these strong emotions pile up during the ride. Suddenly you find yourself at the finish line. For me it was such an intense moment! I can’t explain or find a specific reason why, but I started crying like a baby. I can’t even remember if I was wearing my Deltas at that time. But I don’t care: I do not feel ashamed about that. Men DO cry, when they get a bit closer to their soul."
