Manon Carpenter, the World Cup-winning downhill superstar, has become something of an adventurer since leaving the UCI circuit. As if she wasn’t already inspiring enough, now she gets out on frankly pretty ridiculous long rides into mountains and wilderness and countries many of us have at best dreamt of exploring.
Carpenter’s latest adventure saw her and her partner Christian head up high and north to the highest point in Finland, which happens to be very far up the country and a long way from anything. Looks like it was an amazing trip!
