Checking in after Days Four and Five, when weve made some decent mileage: 53 and 41 kilometers, respectively. The numbers are below our swiss replica watches target daily average of around 60 kilometers, but we had to slow down and walk once we hit some ice rubble. As you can tell from the video, were incredibly tired, and its super cold, damp inside our tent, and windy--but were hanging on. Well be ready to get going again tomorrow.--Kevin Vallely and Ray ZahabIn March 2010, Kevin Vallely and Ray Zahab will embark on the i2P Siberian Express for Water Expedition. They will run 65 to 70 kilometers per day across the frozen suce of Lake Baikal,which is 636 kilometers long--carrying all the food and gear for theentire trip.
VISION PROTECTION: A lot of riders wear goggles with their helmets, often moto-cross or DH specific versions. These keep the dust and wind out, and offer tear-away options, in case you are racing in bad weather. Some people use ski goggles, or sunglasses. The nice thing about moto goggles, like the Smith Fuel V.2, is that the rubber grips on the strap keep them securely in place on your helmet. (No one wants goggles falling cartier Pasha de Cartier watches off while riding—you dont want to actually put your full-face to use, do you?)THE BIKE: You can easily spend anywhere from $3,000 to $7,000 on a bike, but its not necessary. There are plenty of quality bikes on the less spendy side. Most DH-specific bikes have full suspension (front and back) travel of 7 or 8 inches. Ive been riding a Kona Coilair Deluxe, a slightly more versatile—but still bomber bike—that handles almost anything.
