On 15Th of May it was organized an Iron Man MTB competition at Oradea. The competitors had to do 275km off-road in 22 hours. The highest peak has got 1198m. There were 33 teams, and finished only 18 the competition!
Two sportsman, our friends, Jakab Tibor and Astilean Eduard were decided to take part in the competition in the name of hemophilia. They wanted to help us, and say to the ordinary people that with a good treatment, the hemophilia patients can do everything, even sports. The best example is Alex Dowset who trains and competes with Lance Armstrong's Trek-Livestrong team and he suffers from severe hemophilia!

Jakab Tibor and Astilean Eduard helped me before too. They were my trainers, offered me technical support and accompanied me during the trip, when I decided to do the campaign for hemophilia and go to Turkey.
Tibi and Edy finished the competition on the 4th position.
Thank you guys for your generous support!
