Longest motorcycle career

An American motorcyclist who currently holds a record for the duration of his professional career, as well as the number of competitions in which he participated.

Today the Internet is replete with ratings of the best extreme sportsmen, and if there is one in which the name of Michael Larocco is not mentioned even once, then we can immediately conclude that the author is not only not familiar with the topic, but did not read a single article on this topic. One can also be so unambiguous here because over the 19 years of his professional career, Mike has become a living legend, the author of a huge number of new tricks and figures, and also a teacher for several generations of motorcyclists at once.

Mike Larocco was born on February 12, 1971, in Michigan City, Indiana. Like most other athletes, he had a passion for extreme sports since childhood, which sometimes frightened parents and teachers at school, who were used to seeing boys interested in standard sports – football and baseball. Fortunately for us, all attempts to convince him to abandon his unusual hobby did not lead to success. Continue reading

Speleology

Speleology (from the Greek. Spélaion – cave and lógos – word, doctrine) – a complex science, a branch of natural science engaged in a comprehensive study of caves – their geological origin, morphology, mineralization, microclimate, composition and properties of cave waters. As well as the organic world of caves (including speleofauna), the remains of an ancient material culture and modern practical use.

Speleology, as a branch of geology, namely karstology, mineralogy and hydrogeology, studies natural caves – their origin, evolution, age, morphology, mineralogy, ecosystem, hydrogeological and microclimatic features of the caves, their modern and ancient fauna, enclosing rocks.

The unreasonably wide application of the concept of “speleology” has come into fashion in Russia: the word “speleology” is often understood not only Continue reading

Which wakeboard to buy the most true?

We can safely say that wakeboarding is one of the most modern, and at the same time one of the most striking, exciting disciplines in extreme sports. Currently, wakeboarding has steadily divided into two independently developing areas. One is cable wake or, as it is called in Russia, winch wake. The second is classic wakeboarding, where a boat is used for towing.

But this duality with the same name and close essence is not the only thing that clearly distinguishes wakeboarding from other extreme disciplines. If in skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, and even more so in roller-skating or extreme cycling, you first buy what you will ride and then learn, then on a wakeboard all professionals will unanimously tell you that before you buy a wakeboard , one must not only learn to ride it, but also master this skill to a sufficient degree.

The reasons for this inversion are many. Let’s consider only the main ones.

First one. The fact is that a water start on a wakeboard is the main stumbling block for beginners. To learn how to ride a Continue reading
