eXtreme unicycling Mono wheeled adventure Kris holm has spent the last 23 years travelling the world from the Great Wall of China to the wilds of California honing his skills. Now the 36 year old from Vancouver is gearing up for his latest challenge taking on two wheeled riders in a mammoth competitive race. Participating in the BC Bike Race from Vancouver to Whistler in Canada, Kris will compete for seven days against the best the bicycle world has to offer.The words eXtreme and unicycle should never be uttered in the same breath unless you are referring to British mountaineer Steve Colligan. Starting next week he will attempt to traverse a 600 mile stretch of the Himalayas from Lhasa in Tibet to Kathmandu in Nepal, via Everest base camp riding on a mountain unicycle. At 47 years old, Colligan has decided to attempt the record breaking feat in order to raise money for a school in Nepal and undoubtedly to become the greatest unicyclist of all time. He plans on achieving this dangerous feat with his trusty distance unicycle, fitted with an off road tire. No word on whether he will sport a wig, parachute pants and a clown nose during the attempt. You laugh, but it could help keep him warm up there.
