Video: Rumble In The Jungle

by 1

Those of you sensible enough to subscribe to Singletrack or who preordered Issue 108 may already be feasting your eyes on Jason Miles’ account of the Rumble in the Jungle stage race in Sri Lanka. For those of you less sensible, or who have read it and want MORE, here’s the video to accompany the event.

Can’t see the video? Click here.

The sharp eyed among you will spot our Mr Miles in a few scenes, including one where the speaker happens to be talking about the competitors from overseas ‘who are good at this’ finding the race ‘unexpectedly difficult’. Coincidence? Or did Jason look like he was suffering more than he lets on in his write up? Keep watching and you’ll also hear San Kapil talking about riding the race on his fat bike – as part of his training San regularly commutes to work past ST Towers on his fat bike. Actually, he goes past quite a lot of places – his commute being 50km. Making a fat bike a natural choice…?

Jason looking fresh. At the start line we presume.

Watch right to the end and you’ll even be treated to footage of our Jason dancing. We are happy to report that if you’ve already survived the sight of his unzipped jersey and bare chest, the footage of the dancing shouldn’t prove distressing.

If you want to read Jason’s account of his Sri Lanka experience, get yourself over to our shop and order your copy of issue 108 now. And if you want to go out and do the event next year, apply for a place here.

Sri Lanka, Issue 108,

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
