“Amongst cyclists, Megavalanche is regarded as one of the most intense races on Earth. Billed as “a mountainbike downhill marathon-style event that mixes gravity-assisted excitement with enduro levels of fitness, guaranteed to test both nerve and physique,” the annual event takes place in the town of Alpe D’Huez in the French Alps with riders starting at the glaciated summit of the Pic Blanc before descending some 2,000 meters over the course of 30 km to the lush meadows of the valley bottom at Allemont — all in less than an hour’s time. This year, rider Jamie Nicoll — who ultimately finished in seventh place — captured some incredible footage thanks to an on-board, helmet-mounted cam. You can check out the first two minutes of the hectic race above as riders plow into one another right out of the gate.”
“The Patrouille Suisse aerial acrobatics team has wowed landlubbers from afar with its death-defying feats since its formation in 1964, but this video may allow us the closest glimpse we’ll ever get of flying one of those red-and-white planes ourselves. Shot in immersive 360-degree video and hosted on YouTube’s new video player, the four-and-a-half-minute sequence shows the breathtaking view from inside a jet fighter cockpit as the team practices formation maneuvers while winding with precision in between the mighty Swiss Alps. Also visible are the cockpit controls, with the stick and throttle movements controlled by the pilot in front. Make sure to enjoy this strangely calming video in all of its 4K high-def glory using a capable browser such as Google Chrome.”
“For most of his youth, Frank La Rant was unrecognized for his brilliance. Raised by famed French designer Pri Sah, Frank left his village home at the tender age of 16 to pursue his higher calling. Finding many fashion institutions to be unfulfilling, La Rant went out on his own, searching for inspiration until that fateful day when he was inspired by Fruit of the Loom’s plastic test pants. He is now taking his unique plastic style to every part of the world, opening our eyes to who we really are. Because, as he says, “It’s what’s underneath that counts.”
Just watch. Kim draws everything from his head, it’s amazing.
