Common time of parallel passion

1,000,000 kilometres by bike

An extreme sportsman, a team from 16 European countries and a visionary face a unique challenge – together with you.


Sven Ole Müller will ride in summer 2021 – due to the Corona crisis the tour has been postponed for one year – along the Trans-Siberian Railway from Moscow to Vladivostok. In this Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme, each participant conquers an unbelievable 9,103 km on the bike within these days.


As an advance motivation already this year and then during Sven Oles Tour parallel to this, the international Checkstone-Challenge-Team will cycle one million kilometres or maybe even more until Sven Oles finishes.
Become part of this parallel passion. Come along into a common time full of strength. Activate mental power for yourself, Sven Ole and the big picture out there, which is more than all the kilometres in the world.

Sven Ole starts in Moscow …

Red Bull Trans-Siberian Extreme (RBTSE) is the longest and probably toughest bike race in the world. The Tour 2020 has been postponed by one year due to Corona. The start is in June 2021 in Moscow, finishing at the latest one month later in Vladivostok.
The 11 participants from 10 different countries cover a distance of 9,105 kilometres and 77,000 metres of altitude difference in these 25 days, crossing eight time and five climate zones.

The drop-out rate of 65 percent underlines the hardness of the race – whereby a large proportion of the participants stop the race not for physical but for mental reasons.
