As a supporter of Sjaak's dream to complete this unique route we've made no such demand. Can't speak for all on his team, but I'm guessing they feel the same. Sjaak in fact feels that keeping the R1, including the sled in it's Arctic setup, tells the visual story of his epic journey better than anything else. And of course he needs to get it home...
With that, when he gets to more hospitable territory and if the sled were to be in the way of making Key West, I'm sure he'd ditch it.
