Specht Böhm Partners in Russia Coast to Coast Event

Specht Böhm is supporting „Russia Coast to Coast“ as a Partner and legal counsel. The event will begin July 23, 2014 and features Austrian Race Across America winner, Wolfgang Fasching, as he attempts to set a world record biking Coast to Coast across Russia from Vladivostok via Yekaterinburg and Moscow to St. Petersburg a total distance of over 10,000 km within 24 days.

“Russia Coast to Coast” strives to build bridges between Russia & the West while popularizing bicycling as a sport in Russia. In his attempt to accomplish his goal, Wolfgang Fasching will contend with 10,000 km of varying road conditions and 80,000 m of altitude difference. He will have to face extreme weather and climate conditions while maintaining a consistently high performance level and steadfast mental resolve. But if his past accomplishments are any indication, the multiple world record holder and Seven Summits climber’s chances of success are far better than average.

Accompanying Wolfgang on his journey is a team of doctors, mechanics, cooks, journalists and camera men. You can get a feeling for the event via this brief video http://russiac2c.com/videos/ or stay up to date via Facebook, Twitter or live updates on the following websites:
