  • Kunsten at ville af Jesper Kenn Olsen
    - World Run 2: Fra Nordkapp til Cape Town, fra Sydchile til Newfoundland
    af Jesper Kenn Olsen

    Jesper Kenn Olsen er det eneste menneske, der har løbet Jorden rundt på tværs og på langs, kaldet hhv. World Run 1 og World 2. Sammenlagt over 63.000 kilometer.I denne bog fortæller Jesper hele historien om sit opsigtsvækkende World Run 2 fra Nordkapp i Norge, gennem Europa, Mellemøsten og Afrika til Cape Town og videre fra det sydligste Chile gennem Sydamerika og Nordamerika til målet i Newfoundland 28 lande og 36.917 kilometer senere. Han fortæller om at løbe alene og sammen med andre, om ikke at give op, når vinden hyler og man er faret vild i bjergene, når forsyningsbilen bryder sammen i en brandvarm ørken, når løvebrøl advarer om en lidt for spændende nat i teltet, når man løber i et land, hvor folk hver dag kaster sten efter en, eller når sygdom sætter kroppen ude af spil. Og han fortæller om de mange mennesker han møder, de fantastiske landskaber og om, hvordan man helt bogstaveligt klarer et parforhold i løb.Ifølge Jesper Olsen er det først og fremmest et spørgsmål om at ville kunne. Men også om benhårdt arbejde, disciplin og lysten til at udforske verden uden fordomme. Historien om World Run 2 er meget mere end en historie om et løb. Den vil kunne inspirere enhver til at turde og ville lidt mere. For alle Danmarks løbere må "Kunsten at ville" være den store inspiration." – Hjalte Tin, Politiken"Jesper Olsen fortæller, at han er inspireret af de store nordiske opdagelsesrejsende som Knud Rasmussen og Roald Amundsen ... Med sine World Run og beretningerne nærmer han sig samme liga som sine forbilleder." – Morten Albjerg Nielsen, idrætskonsulent og løbetræner"Dette er den bedste løbebog skrevet på dansk til dato ... er ubetinget gaven, der bare skal ligge under juletræet i år. Hvis det ikke var fordi jeg selv havde læst den, ville jeg nok købe den og pakke den ind til mig selv – bare så jeg var sikker på at få den." – Løbemagasinet

  • Kriger på mountainbike af Nis Jakob Spar 17%
    af Nis Jakob

    DEN ULTIMATIVE MTB-BOG OM FLOW OG FART - Gennemfotograferet af adventurefotograferne Martin Paldan og Mikkel Beisner. - KØRER DU RACER ELLER MOUNTAINBIKE, kender du sikkert til fascinationen af fart. Fascinationen af at få kroppen til at yde endnu mere og nå til den yderste grænse af sin formåen. Fascinationen af smerte, sol, tørke, hårde stigninger, vanvittige nedkørsler, mudder, is ogfrost. Og fascinationen af kampen for at “overleve” på den yderste fysiske grænse – ude i naturen. På din cykel. KRIGER PÅ MOUNTAINBIKE er til alle, som gerne vil blive bedre til at cykle.Som vil lære noget om, hvad psyken og det mentale betyder, når manvil udvide sine grænser. Ikke kun på cyklen, men i livet i det hele taget. Bogener en spændende fortælling om at træne op til og gennemføre tre store mtb-løb på et højt niveau. Som supermotionist. Om at komme i flow og få mere fart på cyklen. Om at overvinde sig selv. Mtb er et frirum, hvor du leger og udfordrer dig selv og styrker din krop og din mentale tilstand. Mtb er kontakt med naturen, fordi det foregår i naturen. Hele året og i al slags vejr. Og mtb er meditation, fordi hjernens hverdagstanker kobles fra og kun fokuserer på de næste fem meter foran på det spor, du kører på. Men mtb er desuden et fællesskab med andre, som også er grebet af udfordringerne og afsøgningen af kroppens ekstreme grænser. Vi er alle krigere på mountainbikes. Nis Jakob (f. 1961) har udgivet 9 anmelderroste spændingsromaner siden debuten i 1999. -"Bogen adskiller sig fra meget andet ved at være usædvanlig godt skrevet. Det er ikke det sprog, man typisk støder på hos journalister, akademikere eller amatørskribenter. Nis Jakob kan sin metier. " Adam Eisen, Feltet.dk “Som MTB-dreng har jeg naturligvis slugt alle kapitler fra grejnørderi til de lidt mere dybe menneskelige beskrivelser om flow, der får mig op at køre og blive varm i kinderne.” Lars Bangsgaard,mountainbiker - “Det har været en fornøjelse at læse bogen. Du kommer godt omkring dine emner og fremhæver de vigtigste punkter.” Mathias Juhl Winkel,mountainbiker - “Jeg tog mig selv i at tænke FLOW på singletracket, simpelthen pga. dinbog. Den har gjort indtryk!!!” Jacob Sørensen, mountainbiker - ”Der er knald på Nis Jakobs medrivende fortælling om hans oplevelser og tanker om at køre vildt på mountainbike. Farten i hans jagt på kroppens yderste formåen i brændende sol, piskende regn, mudder og krævende spor i skoven fascinerer læseren. Han fortæller i en pågående, jegbaseret skrivestil om den anderledes jagt på følelsen af flow og erfaringer med at rykke sine mentale grænser. I sin smukt illustrerede bog bygger han sine historier og ærlige overvejelser på en række mtb-løb, som flere vil kalde ekstrem-løb. Der er også plads til selvkritiske reflektioner om værdien af at være en hårdt hund og den sejeste på sporene. ” Steen Bille, Udspil DGI´s medlemsblad. ”Nis Jakob har en fantastisk fortæller evne, og mens man læser hans beretninger og historier, kan man forestille sig det hele oppe i hovedet. Bogen er for dig der trænger til et spark i r…., og mangler den sidste motivation til at komme ud i skoven og fyrer den af og mærke flowet. At læse bogen, kan sammenlignes med at køre dit favorit spor. Når først du er kommet af sted, er der ingen vej tilbage, det er bare fuld fart frem.”Lars Bachmann MTBX.dk "Letlæst og spændende som en roman - fordi den er opbygget som en roman, blandt andet med en tydelig og menneskelig hovedperson, som oplever, længes og tvivler. Det virker og adskiller bogen fra mange andre og gør den ligeså inspirerende og fængende som oplæg til selvrefleksion.Det Hvide Spor. Smag lidt på det. Det Hvide Spor. En både lidt uskyldig og samtidig farlig, dragende klang. Det får måske en til at tænke på det frygtede hjerneindgreb, ’det hvide snit’, eller måske på Michael Hanekes film om ondskab, Det hvide bånd.
Eller måske slet ikke. Det Hvide Spor er nemlig noget så simpelt som et mountainbikespor i Bidstrup Skoven ved Særløse, sydvest for Roskilde.

Men det er samtidig netop det spor, som supermotionisten Nis Jakob i en god del af 2013 og 2014 konstant prøver sig af på. Træner på, konkurrerer på - mod sin venner og konkurrenter i Lejre Weekend Bikers, hvad enten de er med på turen eller ej. Der, han dygtiggør sig. Der, han flytter sig - flytter sine grænser.

Det er på Det Hvide Spor, han søger, finder og legemliggør sit flow."Adam Aisen, feltet.dk

  • Consumption and Representation of Lifestyle Sports
     

    Since their emergence in the 1960s, lifestyle sports (also referred to as action sport, extreme sports, adventure sports) have experienced unprecedented growth both in terms of participation and in their increased visibility across public and private space. book seeks to explore the changing representation and consumption of lifestyle sport in the twenty-first century.

The scholars here emphasise the need to move beyond simplistic understandings of commercialisation as co-option and resistance, to capture the complexity and messiness of the process, and of the relationships between the cultural industries, participants and consumers. The second theme examines gender identity and representations, exploring the potential of lifestyle sport to be a politically transformative space in relation to gender, sexuality and 'race'. The last theme explores new theoretical directions in research on lifestyle sport, including insights from philosophy, sociology and cultural geography.The themes the monograph addresses are wide reaching, and centrally concerned with the changing meaning of sport and sporting identity in the twenty-first century.This book was previously published as a Special Issue of Sport in Society.

Tasked time and again with having to prove herself in the company of men, her tireless dedication on each high-risk excursion opened the door for many of today's female extreme athletes. Recounting in vivid detail many of her adventures, including multiple Mount Everest expeditions, Reynolds explains that her success on each formidable journey didn't arise simply by emulating the men around her but by embracing her feminine strengths of compassion, mediation, cooperation, and observation. As she traveled the world, she broadened her insights into the psychologies of men and women with her immersion in several indigenous cultures, such as the ancient salt traders of Tibet, where she identified gender traits and strengths found in all cultures. Providing a guide for women entering male-dominated fields, Reynolds explains how women as well as men should nurture their feminine assets for more successful relationships at work, at play, at home, and in our global relationship with the natural world.

    Shortlisted for the Sports Book Awards 2018 for Biography of the Year and Cycling Book of the Year There are things he does alone, and things that he alone does.Jacques Anquetil was a cyclist with an aristocratic demeanor and a relaxed attitude to rules and morals. His womanising and frank admissions of doping appalled 1960s French society, even as his five Tour de France wins enthralled it. Paul Fournel was besotted with him from the start ("e;Too young to understand, I was nevertheless old enough to admire"e;) and followed Anquetil's career with the passion of a fan and the eye of a poet. In this stunningly original biography of a complex and divisive character, Fournel - author of the seminal Velo (or Need for the Bike)- blends the story of Anquetil's life with scenes from his own, to create a classic of cycling literature.

  • There is no Map in Hell af Steve Birkinshaw

    In 1986, the legendary fell runner Joss Naylor completed a continuous circuit of all 214 Wainwright fells in the Lake District, covering a staggering distance of over 300 miles - plus many thousands of metres of ascent - in only seven days and one hour.Those in the know thought that this record would never be beaten. It is the ultimate British ultramarathon. The person taking on this superhuman challenge would have to be willing to push harder and suffer more than ever before. There is no Map in Hell tells the story of a man willing to do just that.In 2014, Steve Birkinshaw made an attempt at setting a new record. With a background of nearly forty years of running elite orienteering races and extreme-distance fell running over the toughest terrain, if he couldn't do it, surely no one could. But the Wainwrights challenge is in a different league: aspirants need to complete two marathons and over 5,000 metres of ascent every day for a week.With a foreword by Joss Naylor, There is no Map in Hell recounts Birkinshaw's preparation, training and mile-by-mile experience of the extraordinary and sometimes hellish demands he made of his mind and body, and the physiological aftermath of such a feat. His deep love of the fells, phenomenal strength and tenacity are awe inspiring, and testimony to athletes and onlookers alike that 'in order to attain the impossible, one must attempt the absurd'.

    "e;In the end, these people helped me realize that Boundless was more than a job; it was metaphor for life. It came down to one simple, daily decision-do I stand still or move forward?"e;Filming the hit television series Boundless, Simon Donato has raced thousands human-powered kilometres across the globe-from the frigid tundra of Iceland to the searing heat of the Sahara, journeys that strip away the regular trappings of life and pit us against ourselves and the natural world. There are no modern conveniences to lean on as crutches, and every metre gained is earned through both physical and mental effort.In his compelling first book, Donato details the quest for adventure and the opportunities to test ourselves in a very primal way-in ways that we aren't able to in our lives very much anymore. Describing the key moments and adventures that put him on the path to Boundless, Simon takes you on an adventure-filled journey around the globe and shows how you can apply his lessons and experience to your everyday life.
