  • Tour de France - Verdens hårdeste cykelløb af Joakim Jakobsen
    af Joakim Jakobsen

    6,3 kilo, 30 x 36 centimeter og 784 sider fyldt med sugende fotografier: portrætter, action og væg-til-væg landskaber. Rigt illustreret udgave af bestselleren om verdens hårdeste cykelløb, opdateret til og med Tour de France 2015. Verdens bedste cykelryttere har gennem mere end 100 år presset deres kroppe og hoveder gennem umenneskelige strabadser på de franske landeveje og bjergtoppe. Hårdheden, taktikken og enkeltmandspræstationerne har fascineret publikum, så løbet i dag er verdens største årlige begivenhed. En scene, hvor helte taber stort og frygteligt eller lider sig til sublime sejre. Og hvor heroisme, snyd og brændende rivalopgør hvert år skrives ind i historien.Joakim Jakobsen fortæller hele historien bag løbet og følger dets udvikling år for år fra 1903. Han beskriver de mest absurde optrin og fortæller de vildeste anekdokter. Og han går tæt på de afgørende etaper og tegner portrætter af store og små mestre fra den første vinder til den seneste hersker. "Det er ikke én side for meget, for med allerkyndigste hånd fortæller forfatteren fænomenets hundredårige historie, løb for løb, selvpiner efter selvpiner, drama på drama. Det er stort - og stort fortalt." Steffen Larsen i Politiken "Men næsten mest spændende bliver bogen, når den løfter sig til at afdække ikke kun flige af løbets 100-årige historie, folkets store teater, men også af Frankrigs og Europas samtid." Kåre Bluitgen i Weekendavisen

  • Cykeltræning af Claus Hechmann
    - Optimer dine præstationer med effekttræning
    af Claus Hechmann

    Cykeltræning er en fokuseret og præcis guide til at forbedre dine præstationer på cyklen med effekttræning. Princippet er enkelt: Du skal træne i at kunne cykle så hurtigt som muligt i så lang tid som muligt. Det gør du ved at stimulere din fedtforbrændning, og det kræver, at du træner din udholdenhed med varieret intensitet, hovedsageligt i de lette til moderate træningszoner og over rigtig mange kilometer. Det er på den måde, Claus Hechmann træner danske elitecyklister, og det var også det revolutionerende hovedbudskab i hans bestseller Løb som eliten. Princippet virker, uanset hvilket niveau du cykler på. Vi har forskellige forudsætninger fra naturens hånd, men træner du, som bogen vejleder dig til, vil du blive så god, som du overhovedet kan blive.

  • Sidste tog til Boston af Tonny Vorm
    - Maratonløbets historie
    af Tonny Vorm

    Engang var maratonløb forbeholdt et lille broderskab af elitesportsfolk og lidende excentrikere. I dag er det en milliardforretning, der tiltrækker både modeindustrien, masserne og berømthederne. Hvordan er det sket? Jagten på svar bringer os fra sir Arthur Conan Doyles London over koldkrigstidens Prag til New Yorks hårde asfalt i en personlig fortælling krydret med stemningsfulde reportager, underholdende anekdoter og interview med løbestjerner, eksperter og historikere. Find også ud af, hvorfor kvinderne først fik lov at løbe maraton ved OL i 1984. Hvordan den danske guldalder i 1980’erne blev skabt? Hvor hurtigt afrikanerne egentlig kan løbe? Og vil vi også løbe maratonløb i fremtiden? Sidste tog til Boston er en underholdende indføring i maratonløbets historie. Den henvender sig til både eliteløberen og motionisten samt enhver med interesse for sport og samfund. Tonny Vorm er litteraturkritikker, oversætter og forfatter - og en særdeles habil løber på alt fra 400 meter til 50 miles.

  • Kom i form til halvmaraton på 100 dage af Anders Ejbye-Ernst
    af Anders Ejbye-Ernst

    Kom i form til halvmaraton på 100 dage er skrevet af eliteløberen og sundhedsjournalisten Anders Ejbye-Ernst og henvender sig til løbere på alle niveauer lige fra begynderen, der skal i form uden skader til den erfarne motionist, som jagter nye personlige rekorder. Bogen kommer hele vejen rundt om alle løberlivets aspekter lige fra udstyr, kost og motivation til træning og konkurrenceforberedelse. Træningsfilosofien er inspireret af eliten men tilpasset bredden. Følger du træningsprogrammerne, vil du stå med en effektiv guide, der vil booste både din form og sundhed. Selvom bogen handler om, hvordan du bliver klar til halvmaraton, er de mange tips og tricks om udstyr, motivation, kost, træning og konkurrenceforberedelse almengyldige for alle løbere, uanset om du træner mod 5 kilometer eller maraton. Har du bogen ved din side, så vil du have svar på de fleste af de spørgsmål, der opstår gennem dit liv som løber. Målet med bogen er ikke kun, at du gennemfører et halvmaraton – det er du fortsætter med at løbe bagefter. Sundhedseffekterne af løbetræningen er nemlig gigantiske og giver dig både livskvalitet og et længere liv. Derfor er bogen baseret på langsigtede løsninger, der styrker din motivation og krop – to faktorer der er altafgørende for du kan løbe ud i fremtiden. Formålet med bogen er at den skal kunne gøre alle løbere kloge. Derfor er den baseret på ny idrætsforskning men skrevet på almindelig hverdagsdansk, så alle kan forstå den. Ved siden af de mange opskrifter på forbedret form, sundhed og skadesminimering er bogen krydret med Anders’ personlige træningserfaringer som topatlet gennem næsten 20 år. Her får læseren en praktisk indsigt i de konsekvenser, det har for kroppen, når man træner forkert – og rigtigt. Om forfatteren:

  • Ultrakvinderne af Mette Birk Jensen
    - Om seje kvinder og ekstreme løb
    af Mette Birk Jensen

    Mød Kristina, som løb 1.841 kilometer alene gennem Iran; Gitte, som tre gange vendte tilbage til Sahara for at løbe 250 kilometer med sin proviant på ryggen; og Molly, som løb 222 kilometer i Himalayas ilttynde luftlag. Få et unikt indblik i, hvad der får mennesker til at løbe i dagevis i ufremkommelige bjergområder, 100 kilometer på et stadium eller 5.649 gange rundt om en boligblok i New York. Hvor det tidligere var en præstation af de helt store at løbe et maraton, stiger ultraløbet i dag eksplosivt i popularitet. Ultraløb er oprindeligt betegnelsen for løb, der er længere end den klassiske maratondistance på 42 kilometer og kræver en hel særlig form for motivation, styrke og udholdenhed. Der er i dag stort set ingen grænser for sværhedsgraden. Der er traditionelt færre kvinder end mænd, der stiller op på startlinjen til ultraløb. Men også blandt kvinderne er der i disse år stadigt flere, som kaster sig ud i de mest ekstreme fysiske og mentale udfordringer, der tester både krop og sind. I bogen følger vi journalist Mette Birk Jensen på hendes personlige rejse ind i ultraløbsverdenen, hvor hun møder nogle af verdens sejeste ultrakvinder, som presser sig selv til grænsen for, hvad der er menneskeligt muligt. Og lidt til. I en række farverige portrætter deler de hudløst ærligt ud af deres oplevelser og erfaringer. Hvad driver dem? Hvad får de ud af det, og hvilke råd, kan de give videre? Deres bevæggrunde er lige så forskellige, som de er. Nogle løber fra indre dæmoner eller depression, andre for en sag, for at føle sig i ét med naturen, for at lære sig selv bedre at kende eller for at prøve grænser af. Fælles for dem alle er, at løbet ikke blot gør dem klogere på sig selv, men også bedre rustet til livet generelt. Ultrakvindernes erfaringer viser os, at både krop og sind gemmer på uanede ressourcer. Og hvor der tidligere var en udbredt tendens til at frygte de potentielle skadevirkninger af for meget motion, går den seneste både danske og internationale forskning nu mere i kvindernes retning. Vi kan fysisk holde til en del mere, end vi tror, og mentalt kan der være stor gevinst at hente ved følelsen af at præstere langt ud over det sædvanlige. Udover en grundig introduktion til ultraløb, giver bogen via sine mange portrætter inspiration til enhver, som drømmer om ikke blot om at løbe lidt længere, men også at vove lidt mere. Om forfatteren Mette Birk Jensen er selv ultraløber. Hun bor og træner til dagligt i Thailand, men løb sine første 100 kilometer i Danmark, hvor ideen til Ultrakvinderne opstod. Bogen tager udgangspunkt i og forsøger at besvare de spørgsmål, hun selv stillede sig under sit første møde med de helt lange distancer.

  • Sommeren 1960 af Hans Mortensen
    af Hans Mortensen

    I sensommeren 1960 trodsede det danske fodboldlandshold alle forudsigelser og vandt sølv ved de olympiske lege i Rom. I den turnering fødtes en af dansk fodbolds største stjerner, Harald Nielsen. Det var også her myten om Henry From, der plantede sit tyggegummi på stolpen og reddede et afgørende straffespark, skabtes. Manden bag den danske succes var træneren Arne Sørensen, der kunne se ind i fodboldens fremtid og insisterede på at være en del af den på trods af stivnakkede ledere i DBU. Sørensen var forandringens mand. 1960 var forandringens år på tærsklen til 'de glade tressere'. Beatles spillede deres første koncert i Hamborg. Bob Dylan forlod skolen for at blive musiker. Fellini lod Anita Ekberg bade i Trevifontænen, det danske Socialdemokrati fik sin første formand uden arbejderbaggrund. I Sharpesville myrdede sydafrikansk politi, den unge Nelson Mandelas tilhængere og i USA marcherede Martin Luther Kings oprørske sorte, mens John F. Kennedy bebude sit kandidatur til præsidentposten. Imens trænede danske fodboldspillere til det første tv-transmitterede OL. Et OL, hvor en dansk cykelrytter døde i den første dopingskandale, hvor USA's sorte hentede store triumfer blandt andet ved den 18-årige Cassius Clay, der siden skulle blive Muhammed Ali. Hvor en barfodet etiopisk maratonløber vandt Afrikas første guldmedalje. Og hvor den kolde krig konstant lå som dyster underlægningsmusik mindre end et halvt år før opførelsen af Berlinmuren.

  • Træningstips 2: Løbetræning af Peter Schmidt
    af Peter Schmidt

    Hæfterne i Træningstips serien sigter mod at give inspiration til forskellige aspekter af almen fysisk træning. Almen grundtræning er fælles for stort set al sport og hensigten har derfor været, at indholdet skal kunne anvendes indenfor flere sportsgrene, i idrætsundervisningen og lignende. Stort set uanset sportsgren. Serien er som sagt tænkt som inspirationskilde - et opslagsværk - hvor der kan findes materiale, der enten kan anvendes som beskrevet, eller som kan modificeres, så det passer målgruppen eller ønsket resultat af træningen. Det handler om at sætte tanker i gang, ikke om at give færdige, firkantede løsninger.

    - My Life in Hockey and the Power of Perseverance
    af Jim Lang & Bryan Berard

    Former NHL star Bryan Berard shares the inspiring story of his life on and off the icefrom finding early success in the league and suffering a life-changing eye injury to discovering the inner strength to overcome whatever life threw at him and continue to play the game he loved.';My career is over,' I said. ';I'm never going to play in the NHL again.' My mom turned to me, a stern look on her face. ';';Never' does not exist in our family's vocabulary.' On March 11, 2000, Bryan Berard's life changed forever. One moment, he was a young hockey star, a former first overall pick and Olympian who had a long, bright career ahead of him. The next, he was writhing on the ice, his eye slashed by a wayward stick. The doctors feared Bryan might lose his eye. It seemed certain that he would never play hockey again. But ever since his childhood, Bryan had refused to believe that anything was impossible. With the support of his family behind him and his own inner determination driving him forward, Bryan not only recovered, but made a triumphant return to the NHL just two years after his injury. It seemed that the worst was behind him. But there were storm clouds on the horizon. Injuries continued to plague him throughout the rest of his career, which saw him move from North America to Russia to continue to play the game he loved. Reports of steroid use cast a shadow over his accomplishments. And then, just as he was about to retire, Berard learned that his long-time financial adviser had defrauded him, several other hockey stars, and others out of millions of dollars in life savings. Despite every setback, though, Berard refused to give up. He nearly lost an eye, but he never lost sight of what was most important in his life. Funny, honest, and inspiring, Berard's memoir is a tribute to the resilience and perseverance of the human spirit.

  • Road to Gold af Mark Spector
    - The Untold Story of Canada at the World Juniors
    af Mark Spector

    From bestselling author Mark Spector comes the behind-the-scenes story of the Canadian World Junior program's journey from obscurity to the international powerhouse that it is today.On the world junior hockey stage today, Canada is known as the team to beat. They hold the record for the most gold medals won (seventeen since the tournament's inception), their games draws millions of fans each year, and the tournament serves as a showcase for each year's best talent. But things weren't always so rosy. For years, Canada languished in obscurity at the World Juniors. Wearing the red-and-white wasn't a mark of honour but merely a sideshow to the players, owners resented the interruption to their league operations, and Canada was an afterthought at the tournament. Canada was supposed to be better at hockey than any nation on earthhow could the team languish in such obscurity? So, the team set out on a reclamation mission. The Program of Excellence was born, and with it, a new hope for hockey's future in Canada. No more would Canada be content with merely showing up. Instead, each year, the country would send its best talentfrom Gretzky to Lemieux to Crosby to McDavidto reclaim its spot at the top of the hockey world. Tracing the owner disputes, off-ice antics, and riveting on-ice action of nearly forty years at the World Juniorsand full of inside stories from hockey greatsthis is hockey history as you've never seen it before. Funny, smart, and clear-eyed, Mark Spector traces the remarkable rise of the Canadian World Junior program and shows how the World Juniors created not just a new team, but a new dream for the sport.

  • Skiing with Henry Knox af Sam Brakeley
    af Sam Brakeley

    In 2015, Sam Brakeley stood at a crossroads in his life. His long-time girlfriend was moving to Utah, with or without him, and he was torn between following her or remaining in New England with family, friends, and the land he loved. So he set out to complete the Catamount Trail, a 330-mile cross-country ski trail that runs across Vermont from the Massachusetts border to Canada. He took advantage of his time in the woods to reach a decision-and brought Henry Knox along for the trip. In 1775, Knox undertook a winter journey of similar length, retrieving dozens of artillery pieces from the recently captured Fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain and dragging them 300 miles through snow and cold to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to help George Washington drive the entrenched British army from Boston. Knox, too, faced his own challenges in love, leaving behind a young pregnant wife. By exploring Knox's eighteenth-century physical and emotional journey while undertaking his own twenty-first-century trip on the Catamount Trail, Brakeley reminds us that history has many lessons to offer the living.

Tens of millions of people a year, including children, watch and cheer on the fighters. Some players are paid handsomely; others barely a living wage. But either way, these fighters are lauded, valued, and considered to be essential to the game. That is, until their playing days are over. Hockey enforcers spend their lives fighting on ice to protect their teammates and entertain their fans, but when their playing days are over, who's left to fight for them?Major Misconduct scrutinizes a highly dangerous and controversial cultural practice.

They have experienced estrangement, mental health issues, addiction, and brushes with the law. And they've stared death in the face.The debate surrounding fighting in hockey is hotly contested on both sides. This daring and revelatory book explores the lives of those who bare-knuckle boxed on ice for a living and investigates the human cost we're willing to tolerate in the name of hockey fighting.

Employing terminology never before used in Russian to describe movements with which few were familiar, Skis in the Art of War gives a breakdown of the latest techniques at the time from Scandinavia and Finland. Eimeleus's work is an early and brilliant example of knowledge transfer from Scandinavia to Russia within the context of sport.Nearly three decades after he published his book, the Finnish army, employing many of the ideas first proposed by Eimeleus, used mobile ski troops to hold the Soviet Union at bay during the Winter War of 1939-40, and in response, the Soviet government organized a massive ski mobilization effort prior to the German invasion in 1941. The Soviet counteroffensive against Nazi Germany during the winter of 1941-42 owed much of its success to the Red Army ski battalions that had formed as a result of the ski mobilization. In this lucid translation that includes most of the original illustrations, scholar and former biathlon competitor William D. Frank collaborates with E. John B.

A portion of proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research.';Max, you have type 1 diabetes,' the doctor said. My mom and I looked at each other. For her, time stood still for a second as our entire future as a family shifted. But I had no clue what the diagnosis meant. So I said the first thing that came to mind. ';Can I still play hockey?' As a kid, when Max Domi was asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, he only ever had one answer: a hockey player. Growing up the son of a professional hockey playerTie DomiMax saw from an early age what it took to make the NHL: grit, talent, and the support of a team. Over countless hours in the garage, at the rink, and in the gym, Max chased his dream. It seemed that Max was born to be on the ice. But then, when he was twelve years old, Max started getting sick. And sicker. Eventually, he and his family learned the truth: Max had type 1 diabetes. Overnight, Max and his family found their lives upended. All Max wanted was to be a normal kid, but suddenly, the simplest thingsa game of basketball with friends, a family meal, a school field tripwere complicated with a thousand different considerations. Would people notice or make fun of him if he carried his blood-testing kit everywhere? Would his teammates think he was weak if his blood sugar went low at hockey practice? How much insulin did he need after a meal? And all the while, the fear of what might happen if things went wrong hung over his head. Max had to grow up quickly. As he struggled to find his new normal, Max slowly began to realize that overcoming his disease demanded the same qualities that it took to be a hockey playermental and physical toughness, maturity, and the love and care of family and friends. Bit by bit, he learnedsometimes the hard waynot just to control his diabetes, but to turn it into an advantage. If managing his disease was going to demand that Max be stronger, more prepared, and more disciplined than anyone else, then he wouldn't just be good at those things: he'd be the best. He'd do whatever it took to move him closer to his dream of playing in the NHL. Inspiring, heartwarming, and exciting, No Days Off is a memoir about what it's like to be a kid whose world is turned upside down, and what it takes to face adversity.

    - Including Useful Information for off Piste Skiers and Snow Boarders
    af Henry Branigan & Keith Jenns

    There is something extraordinarily special about sliding on snow that has excited generations of snow sports enthusiasts. Add to this the dimension of travelling through the mountains and the result is a recipe for some of the best outdoor activity days you could ever imagine. I have been fortunate to share some of these adventures with Henry Branigan: Skiing off the summit of Mount Blanc at dawn or, equally enjoyable, skiing under the northern lights from hut to hut in Norway, still my all-time favourite way of travelling through the mountains. A complete guide to alpine ski touring, ski mountaineering and nordic ski touring sets out to provide the fundamentals about going off piste and then journeying through mountain terrain, in a logical, easy to read format. Adapting ski technique for various off piste conditions is an essential skill that makes all the difference between surviving and savouring adventures off piste. The book also covers the fundamental mountaineering knowledge including navigation, weather and avalanches that are essential before venturing beyond the confines of a ski area. Equipment and planning a tour are covered, whether it is in an Alpine or Nordic environment. All in all this is a very comprehensive and valuable resource for anyone aspiring to venture into the mountains on skis. Bob KinnairdPrincipal Glenmore Lodge National Outdoor Training Centre

    - The Complete Guide to Alpine Skiing Fitness
    af S. Kramer MS

    Every winter, world-class racers schuss down race courses at speeds upwards of 80 mph, going all-out for 2 minutes of racing. Die-hard recreational skiers spend weekends exhausting themselves to catch that last chair-lift ride. Professional ski instructors devote their free time to honing skills in technique and tactics to meet specific national standards. Regardless of the number of days spend on snow, all participate in a sport that demands a balanced combination of peak conditioning in targeted fitness areas, called performance abilities- endurance, strength, power, speed and agility. As part of a thesis for the completion of a Masters degree in kinesiology, Be Fit to Ski incorporates over 30 years of research on alpine skiing and athletic training toward the development of a year-round fitness program. The idea of periodization, a block-training approach using microcycles and macrocycles, forms the basis of four training phases that begin in the spring and culminate with the end of the ski season. Divided into three sections, Basics of Training, Performance Abilities, and The Training Year, this book provides all the necessary answers to develop year- round fitness training for skiing that will result in quicker skill improvement and guaranteed more vertical per day.
