In 2009, he took part in bike&hike expedition called „Velký Benátčan" (Great Venetian).

He managed to finish the310 km long track with the altitude of6000 m without break on a road bicycle, mountain bicycle and climbing over the glacier in less than 17 hours. Descending the hill and downhill ride took him 3 more hours. Thus, he successfully finished the non-stop expedition in 20 hours. (Taken from: lideahory.cz)
