Ricardo Machado was chosen for the Fjällräven Polar challenge.
The Vila Real scout Ricardo Machado is one of the 10 winners of the Fjällräven Polar challenge organized by a Swedish company for a sled trip through the Arctic Circle.
One day before the competition, Ricardo Machado was in 3rd place, but in 24 hours the young man managed to put the netizens to vote for him and won the Greek competitor who was in the lead.
To the channel of Carnaxide, the young man admitted that the preparation will not be easy. “It takes a great physical and especially psychological preparation,” he explained.
The adventure takes place between April 8 and 13, 2019, where a group of people will venture for 300 km through the Arctic desert, with over 200 highly trained sled dogs.
