BIO

Nicolas has been valuable member of the Massey Ferguson workforce in the Beauvais factory for 2 years.

WHY ANTARCTICA2?

My boss offered me the chance to work on the preparation of the tractor for the expedition one year ago and I accepted it. After several tests and preparation, I got more and more involved and interested in participating at this expedition. For me it’s a big personal and technical challenge to make the tractor ready and realise this adventure.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE TOUGHEST PART OF THE EXPEDITION?

I’m afraid that there will be issues that I won’t be able to solve and therefore stop the expedition.

WHAT’S BEEN YOUR TOUGHEST CHALLENGE SO FAR?

The toughest challenger for me has been to prepare the tractor and send all parts on time for the expedition.
