Thursday Video - North Pole Bike Extreme

Start of the 2007 North Pole Bike Extreme race
This week's video features the North Pole Bike Extreme race which was held in 2007. The participants seemed to have a good time, but apparently it didn't catch on. The website they reference at the end of the video now has a lot of non-English letters and no pictures. My guess is that the logistics of getting the participants and their bikes to the event was just too expensive. I haven't found information on any bike race at the North Pole except for the 2007 race. Spaniards took both first and second place at the 26.2 mile race. The winner finished in a little over three hours.
