Nails or what! I overheard a snippet about this on TV this morning. They said someone was aiming to break the world blind downhill skiing speed record. What the fcuk!!! I have never skied. And the idea of bombing downhill at over 100 mph scares me sh1tless. Let alone if you can't see where you're going. So I did a Google search; I couldn't find anything about someone currently aiming to break the record. But, it seems, it must be Kevin Alderton. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/kent/6538527.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/kent/4909602.stm http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbEO-t9TIO0&feature=user http://www.nosightnofear.com/ http://www.bbc.co.uk/kent/content/articles/2007/08/15/kevin_alderton_feature.shtml Amazing bloke ......... and some nice "squaddie" humour here: I am speechless and so full of admiration. I suppose this is who they were talking about on TV? Anyone confirm whether this chap is aiming to break his record?
