Video: Great Days 3 – Chile Part 2 – Questioning Your Limits

This (somewhat graphic) video is the second of a three-part series by Smith Optics that brings you through the last few days of the Andes Pacifico Enduro stage race with an unexpected hospital visit to keep things exciting. A blind course makes it an even playing field, but also a game of question on how hard racers should and can push themselves around every turn. Viewer discretion is advised…if you go lightheaded at the sight of blood you SHOULD NOT WATCH the video. If not, take a look for a raw and real view into the highs and lows of enduro racing…

20 Minutes with the Incomparable Marianne Vos

By Sal Ruibal I can’t even get angry with humanity anymore.
