Red Green show meets old cyclocross vid

This is a link to a 1950 or is it 1960's Euro cyclocross video with commentary that sounds like the Red Green Show but not on purpose.   Great footage and at about 3 minutes or was it 1 minute?  look for the first mountain bike ever.

Canning Stock Route

Ridding the Canning Stock Route in Austrailia got Jakub Postrzygacz the Achievement of the year by the National Geographic Society.  He did this in 2006.  The link has more pics and background info.  He did this route of over 2000k in the desert self supported.  The route is considered impossible to do by motorcycle because they can't carry enough supplies.   Off road trucks apparently need fuel drops along the way.  Jakub rider lost about 40 lbs in the 33 days and ate a lot of lizards and bugs.
