NEW: IMPULSE LECTURE WITH WOLFGANG FASCHING (in German language)
"You do what you want!" Think and act successfully
The extreme athlete and motivation expert - the first European to compete and win the Race Across America (RAAM), the world's toughest and longest non-stop cycling race. With unbending will, sweat and a lot of hard training he pursued his goal, did not let himself be distracted and made his dream come true.

Wolfgang Fasching won the RAAM three times (1997, 2000, 2002) and was always on the podium for another five participations - once even with a broken collarbone. The Styrian also dominated the 24-hour scene and competed in the race "Across Australia", where he held the record for several years. Thanks to him, the long-distance cycling scene in Austria became well-known and respectable.

In 2014 Wolfgang faced his biggest challenge. He was the first person to ride non-stop across Russia from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg. Thousands of truck drivers, miles of construction sites, a reckless driver, three weeks and 10,000 km later he reached his destination. Believe him when he says: "It was not funny. But it is true: I live for adventures like that."
