Katja Joachim - Germany - 37

Racehorse enthusiast, traveller and surfer, as well as a 2014 Mongol Derby participant, Katja needed a good motivation to get into endurance after the Derby and in need of the perfect challenge for 2016: she found Race The Wild Coast! She has practiced her navigational skills by riding a motorbike 2000 km through Vietnam and is currently in the land of Fire and Ice to chase the midnight sun on native horses with 14 other Mongol Derby veterans.
