We recently ran Sierre Zinal, a historic and super-competitive 31 km (18 mile) town-to-town trail race in the Swiss Alps. The race was impressive– in its scale (4500 people), its pace, and the local enthusiasm before, during, and after. It was our first race overseas and an incredible introduction to the European scene.
I thought I’d pass along a little video that recently hit the Internet about Seb Chaignieu’s winning Hardrock 100. I don’t usually re-post content created by others, but this race is a tough subject to accurately capture, and I think this video does a pretty good job.
While we’re waiting for the snow to arrive, I wanted to pass along a cool video by Jordan Manley on the sailboat skiing adventures in NW Iceland offered by Borea Adventures. Iceland: A Skier’s Journey EP3 S3 from ARC’TERYX on Vimeo.
Thanks to the efforts of pacer/friend Chris Davenport, I ended up with some video footage from Hardrock earlier this summer. I have to confess, I wasn’t always in the mood to talk when he turned on the Contour HD camera during the late stages of the race, but when I finally got to looking at […]
I’ve always preferred chasing to being chased. That’s why when I saw how close the pack was to reeling in Tom Danielson as they neared the finish of Stage 3 of the US Pro Cycling Challenge, I felt for him. I was sure he was going to be caught.
These have been in the news a lot lately. Christy and I decided we’d get avalanche airbags for each other as Christmas presents this year. And even though we haven’t been backcountry skiing at all this season due to the dicey conditions, we know they’ll eventually see some use.
It was a fun couple of days out there,
In 2003, I was offered the chance to be a part of the first, live televised summit of Mount Everest. The catch– it was as a contestant on a reality television show. The series was called “Global Extremes – 4 Runners of Adventure” and in short, it took a whole bunch of contestants to exotic […]
I pulled out the GoPro last weekend while mountain biking in Fruita. Here’s a little clip I put together from a ride with Philip, Troy and Wheaton, down the 18 Road luge-course known as the Kessel Run. It’s set to music from the Boulder-based band The Amends. Their first, self-titled album was released earlier this […]
“It’s a classic!” said Tim, which by itself didn’t mean much to me since he describes most, if not all, sections of river he’s run as such. But in this case he wasn’t the only friend to speak of the the 85 mile stretch of the Desolation and Gray Canyons of the Green River as […]
