Certainly you all know Ryder Hesjedal of Garmin fame. Well he's not content to have a wicked fast starts on the mountain bike (01 World Cup in Napa Mens Start)..Ryder thought it would be a good idea to try and break Jonathan Vaughters record for the climb up Haleakala, the 10,000 foot volcano in Hawaii (yep, 0 - 10,000 in about 57Km!). Here is the video:
