Another World Record : Rudy Pospisil( Burnaby Firefighter In Australia)
R udy Pospisil, one of our Fire Captains, has been cycling around the world to raise money for cancer research. His journey finishes in Melbourne, Australia on November 18, 2017.He says that “I am a man from British Columbia they dont even know. The support has been amazing. I think they know people from British Columbia and Firefighters are good people. I fly my Canadian flag with signatures of Canadians and cancer patients. What a great turnout by all the amazing Australian Volunteer Firefighters. At least a dozen crews were waiting at the sides of the highway on my way into the outback to chat and shake hands . I had a few good stories ready!!!. These amazing men and women do the job not for money (because they dont get paid)...but because they love to help others. I told the Commissioner this morning he must be proud of his volunteers and he confirmed he is!.I know these are the guys that will come to my aid and clean me off the road if anything happens to me. Each day now will be less and less people cars and trucks just a desert plain and nothing. World Record. 5 hours 1 minute and 20 seconds. OFFICIALLY RECORDED This was one tough feat average 30 kph , I did not feel alone everyone following cancer patients family thank you all . I’m real tired now so I think I’ll go home Only 3000 km to go. So if you want to beat it $1000 to the cancer charity of your choice is the fee. i will pay for the first challenger. Good luck its a bitch like riding into a furnace on at full blast. My eyeballs dried out and my nose is plugged with dust. Four months ago I was listening to this song because I could not walk up a set of stairs I was so weak I never thought i would ride a bike again Four months ago I could not walk up a set of stairs without being winded. Today I am 300 km into a 4000 final journey around the world. I finish in Melbourne Nov 18. I still represent The Burnaby Fire department and am very happy I do.
