Robin Chipperfield and Mark Shardlow at Nottingham Train Station
Two BBC reporters did not let the volcanic ash get in the way of them attending Carl Froch's fight on Saturday, 24 April, 2010.
Robin Chipperfield and Mark Shardlow got a train to Brussels and then drove over 500 miles to Herning, where Mikkel Kessler awaits Froch.
With restrictions on air travel there was even a doubt Froch could get there - he later booked a private jet.
Robin said: "Once we were sure Carl was going, there was no doubt we would."
The sports journalists did ask if they could join Froch on his 10-seater jet but there was no room and so alternative plans were sought.
Robin said before setting off: "I've just looked at it on the map and it's much further than I thought it was! At first I thought it going to be a nightmare but now I'm looking forward to it."

The journey started on Tuesday, 20 April, in Nottingham, with a long delay. They finally made it to St Pancras station at 2pm and boarded the Eurostar to Brussels.
From Belgium they travelled 566 miles to their destination in Denmark, by car.
Robin and Mark did not intend to drive the distance in one go but after failing to find a hotel in Germany they drove through the early hours of the morning to Denmark.
Robin said on his twitter page: "Just checked into Danish hotel at 3.45am. Don't mind if I get some sleep do you?"
