Belgian native Dixie Dansercoer is the ultimate polar explorer and outdoor enthusiast. His achievements include a high-altitude mountain biking world record, becoming windsurfing champion of his country and completing several marathons and triathlons, but he is particularly captivated by the Polar landscapes. Dixie has pioneered crossings of both poles on foot and has advised the European Space Agency. His renown has even led to the erection of his statue in his home town of Nieuwpoort.
