Many of you have followed us on the 2015 "Road to Mandalay" and on the 2012 “London to Cape Town” rallies. On June 12 we will start to drive 14 000 km on the "Peking to Paris" rally. The race will take us through Mongolia & Siberia driving through 11 countries until we reach Place Vendôme in Paris on July 17.
We will try to post a short comment on our blog on most days with the exception of Mongolia where we will have no internet access.

Day 12 Altai Republic to Aya
The Altai Region is an amazing scenery, imagine the Alps but nearly no people.
One quick test section slippery gravel.
A 585 km day with a longer day coming up tomorrow.
Below you can see a couple of cars stuck in the water crossing.
