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.

Madness Technology: Thousand Balloon Flying

Probably, it seems to you that to rise above the peaks of Elbrus on a bunch of balloons is a completely insane undertaking? It seems right to you. But to find out exactly how crazy this idea is, only one person decided in our country. Along the way, setting a world record, which is still not beaten by anyone, and perhaps forever remains unattainable.
Madness Technology: Thousand Balloon Flying
In total, Vitaly Kulikov made two flights. The first took place on September 25, 2004. On 360 balls pumped with hydrogen, the pilot climbed to a height of 400 m and flew 8.5 km in 25 minutes

When Muscovite Vitaly Kulikov flew into the sky 14 years ago, and then, rising to a record height, he went downstairs – though, barely surviving and raising the Ministry of Emergencies and the police to his feet – many wrote and even talked about this event on television . But then the journalists were mainly interested in the dramatic ups and downs of the flight itself and the subsequent rescue operation. We decided to recall those events in order to talk about the technology of such a seemingly not too high-tech project. But should there be tricks here?

Completely nonsense balls Continue reading
