The Paterberg with Team Sky
…Livesey shook British climbing to it’s hairy socks and showed what application and dedication could produce while talent sat in the pub musing about what it was going to do.
A team of French climbers were hit by a rock on the Desmaison Gousseault and were evacuated by helicopter. This really shows how serious the work can be and the talent involved: from flying the heli to getting the climbers off the mountain. Huge respect to all those who work at the PGHM.
Buy them beer if they ever take you off the mountain!

Most people tremble at the idea of riding a bike in the winter. Others, relish in it. For several dedicated Toronto cyclists and bike messengers, winter is a time to show their dedication.
For nearly twenty years, Toronto has been the scene of North America’s only bicycle ice race in a closed velodrome style circuit - otherwise known as an ice hockey rink. The race also exists to fund raise for the local community - and the 2012 year raised funds for at-risk youth program called Charlie’s Freewheels (charliesfreewheels.ca/)
Le Roi de Glace follows a few ambitious cyclists who are set on winning this prestigious yearly event.

This is a short film about the processes by which mountains are created and eventually destroyed. It is based upon the work of British geographer L. Dudley Stamp, and was shot in Iceland.
Physical geography and geology is an enormous and fascinating subject, and this film only touches upon the surface of the discipline. For those who wish to further advance their knowledge in this field, further reading and research is recommended.

Somewhere during Festive 500 2012 my tortured mind came up with the idea to simply do Festive 500 in one ride and “get it over with”. A year later that idea hasn’t left my head. So that’s where this brilliant (and by brilliant, i mean stupid) idea to ride Festive 500 in one ‘go’ came from. And to make this ‘easier’ I figured out that I’d start somewhere that is about 500 km from home and ride back. Paris was as random as any other ‘500km away from home’ location could have been. Only later the route turned out to coincide with the prevailing wind.
This is our story.
