One Mile Down: Siberian Scramble follows the dreams of two Irishmen – motorbike adventure enthusiast Declan McEvoy, and one-eyed thrill seeker Gary O’Keeffe. They put together an international team who, in February 2020, drove for seven days across the ice of Lake Baikal in the middle of a minus 40-degree Siberian winter. They set two Guinness World Records: The Longest Motorcycle Journey on Ice and The Longest 4×4 Journey on Ice.
