“Belstaff is another piece of vital equipment for us”

For Hugo and Ross, better known as adventurers the Turner Twins, life could have been very different. Aged just 17 Hugo broke his neck in a diving accident. “I managed to walk away,” he recalls, “but for so many other people, they can’t walk away. I guess that’s a huge motivator for us.”

It has spurred them on to break world records. In 2011-12 they were part of the youngest four-man crew – and the first twins – to row the Atlantic. Their latest adventure is similarly grand in scale: to cycle to North America’s Pole of Inaccessibility. The furthest point from the continent’s coast, this is the United States’ remote centre. Preparation will be key.

“Belstaff is another piece of vital equipment for us,” continues Hugo, with reference to the twins’ Trialmaster Evo parkas. “It helps us do the everyday as efficiently as possible and gives us the confidence to go out and achieve our dreams.”
