What a treat! After pedaling in Emmanuel’s tire tracks for so long, to finally meet him is wonderful!
Emmanuel Gentinetta set the world record as the youngest to cycle the length of the Americas back in 2000 when he was 18 years old. He had pedaled from Prudhoe Bay to Ushuaia in a mere nine months.
It’s been great fun to swap stories from the road with him and we’re looking forward to a couple more days here. He’s graciously invited us to stay as long as we want – and given the fact that the weather forecast calls for a week of rain, it may be a while!
