Michael Gaunt’s team will take part in the Red Bull Can You Make It challenge in April.

A Barnstaple-born man is about to embark on the trip of a lifetime after winning an online competition.

Michael Gaunt is part of a team of three selected to take part in Red Bull Can You Make It.

The challenge will see the student physiotherapist start in Berlin on April 12 with his teammates Sophie Scott and Stephanie Jemphrey.

The trio will hand over their money and phones and will have a week to get to Paris via six city checkpoints across Europe, using cans of the energy drink as currency.

Michael's team were selected for the challenge after their video application became one of the highest voted submissions.

The team are able to increase the amount of currency they are given by receiving support online.
