The Pioneer 2019
Part of the Epic Series, this 6 day mountain bike stage race takes riders through New Zealand’s pristine Southern Alps, linking together 424 kilometres of spectacular trails and challenging single-track, in a stunning part of the world where soaring mountain peaks, crystal-clear blue lakes, and golden high country await. At the end of each day, local New Zealand hospitality will extend the event into a genuine Kiwi experience.
Xterra Adventures 2019 Episode 3 – Xterra Belgium
For episode three of our series Xterra Adventures, we head to Belgium, where more than 40 elite XTERRA athletes, representing a dozen different countries, as well as the top amateur triathletes in Europe, gathered in the city of Namur. Namur is the home of an iconic one-thousand-year-old Citadel offering to the athletes a hilly, grueling race which comprises of a 1.5-kilometer swim in the Meuse River, a 37-kilometer mountain bike through city and forest, and a tough 10-kilometer run around the famous fortress. But it’s more than just elite triathletes who live and breathe XTERRA. For the thousands of age-group competitors, training can become a personal mission and reaching an XTERRA finish line represents a major life accomplishment.
Kite Masters 2019 Episode 6 – Sardinia
Welcome to Kite Masters 2019! The series that flies you around the world, together with the very best athletes from one of the most exciting, fast, extreme and stylish sports… Kiteboarding! The last stop takes place on the magnificent island of Sardinia, and the city of Cagliari. This is the third successive year that the Sardinian capital of Cagliari has hosted the series, where intense battles in the cutting-edge kiteboarding discipline will again be fought out on the Gulf of Angels, off the pristine Poetto Beach. But the 2019 edition’s climactic finale over the five-day Sardinia Kiteboard Grand Slam, is set to be one of the hardest-fought, after kiteboarding won inclusion into the line-up for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
Wreck Dives on The French Riviera – Le Togo
Welcome to the third episode of our series dedicated to wreck diving on the French Mediterranean coast between Toulon and Saint Tropez. In this episode, Eric, diving instructor, takes us to the Togo. It is a 78.5 m long Coal Cargo which lies flat on the bottom between 47 m and 61 m. It was built in 1882 and sank on a German mine in May 1918 off Cavalaire. The wreck is impressive with a large engine room. Part of the shell is lined with gorgonian fans and sponges. Pay attention to the depth and management of decompression.
