Welcome to svalbard
The North Pole has a neighbour: Svalbard. It’s one of the world’s most striking wilderness areas, and it’s where Norrøna came up with one of its greatest and most popular concepts: svalbard. Inspired by vast glaciers, fantastic fjords and jagged peaks, svalbard also honours polar heroes of past and present. These products are outdoor essentials – arctic quality cotton for winter use, rugged summer mountain wear, renowned synkron™ backpacks and a special expeditionary concept developed personally by Børge Ousland. Durability and weather protection characterize Norrøna’s entire svalbard series. Yet we use materials that are kinder to the environment, like recycled polyester and organic cotton.

…Sospel to Monte-Carlo!
Nicolas Lau is the overall winner of the Trans Provence and the drama of the race continued
Trans Provence came to a close on Sunday and the winner was Nicolas Lau. Over the trails, through the rain, thunder and lightning and to the beach at Monaco the last day of the Trans Provence was an eventful one.
One rider, Sven Martin, broke his arm and had to be airlifted to hospital and despite this his wife Anka Martin finished the day.
There were two severe storms, which saw riders and mountain staff dodging lightning and the trails becoming even more perilous. Following the second storm there was a three-bike pile up but thankfully no more serious injuries.
So the final top three for the men’s race was Nicolas Lau in first, Nicolas Vouilloz in second and last year’s winner Jérôme Clementz came in third.
The women’s race was won by Anne-Caroline Chausson with Anka Martin in second and Rosara Joseph in third.
So a dramatic week at the Trans Provence, what excitements will next years race hold?
If you’ve got half an hour to kill, do yourself a favour – make a cuppa or crack open a Heineken 😉 kick back and watch this pretty cool edit of a few guys that definitely look like they’re loving the ride in what looks like an amazing country of amazing contrasts…
From capsusfilms.com :
“What you are going to see is not a film about sporting performances, but the story of a journey made by friends, passionate about sport, during three weeks in a destination unknown to them: Chile.
Ce que vous allez découvrir n’est pas un film d’exploits sportifs, mais le récit d’un voyage de passionnés durant 3 semaines, dans une destination qui leur était inconnue : Le Chili ”
