Meet The Twins On A Mission To Reach The Most Inaccessible Points On Earth – RedBull
On bike, foot and – erm – paramotor, Ross and Hugo Turner have found a way to reach some of earth’s most extreme points. The duo talk us through their adventure so far.
The Turner Twins have a bond most siblings could only dream of.

Once Hugo was well again, the Englishmen set out on a 2,650-mile row across the Atlantic. Not content with being punished by 40-foot waves, they then attempted to traverse Greenland’s polar ice cap, using the same clothing as Sir Ernest Shackleton. They then did the same thing – donning the clothing of a century ago – to climb Mount Elbrus.
