Legendary mountain biker brothers Dan and Gee Atherton go for a ride through Dona Marta slum in Brazil. The course was designed and built for the unprecedented Red Bull Desafio no Morro race. redbull.com
Slovakia's Filip Polc took top honors in the Red Bull Desafio no Morro, an unprecedented mountain bike downhill competition inside a favela (slum) in Rio de Janeiro. Polc's best time of 1:39.91 down the 760 meters of the favela's alleys and staircases was enough to edge Brazilian Markolf Berchtold by over 1.5s. Britain's Dan Atherton completed the podium with a top mark of 1:42.29. Dan's brother Gee Atherton entered the competition in Brazil as the clear favorite, and confirmed those expectations by topping the qualifying session on Saturday. Race day didn't equal lucky day for Gee, however, who ended up last among the 10 riders competing after suffering a flat rear tire halfway through the course. redbull.com
Astonishing Alpine location photography and a young Robert Redford in one of his earliest starring roles are just two of the visual splendors of Michael Ritchie's visceral debut feature, DOWNHILL RACER. In a beautifully understated performance, Redford is David Chappellet, a ruthlessly ambitious skier competing with an underdog American team in Europe for Olympic gold, and Gene Hackman provides tough support as the coach who tries to temper the upstart's narcissistic drive for glory. With a subtle screenplay by acclaimed novelist James Salter, DOWNHILL RACER is a vivid character portrait buoyed by breathtakingly fast and furious imagery that brings the viewer directly into the mind of the competitor
Here are two lounge songs chosen to underline the great beauty of Camilla Sparv. Camilla Sparv (born in 1943 in Stockholm) is a retired Swedish actress. She was briefly circa 1965, the second wife of the actor and businessman who would eventually reign as Paramount Pictures's production chief - the legendary Robert Evans. She was brought to Hollywood by Columbia Pictures in 1965. Sparv was third-billed as Sister Constance in "The Trouble With Angels" (1966), then specialized in sexy-foreigner roles. But she uttered the best line in the 1967 "Matt Helm" espionager "Murderer's Row" (with Dean Martin and Ann-Margret); cast as the mistress of villain Karl Malden, Sparv comforted her lover after his latest doomsday device has failed by murmuring "Cheer up. Maybe you can run someone over on the way home." She was awarded a Golden Globe as Most promising newcomer (female) in 1967 for her role in "Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round" (1966, with James Coburn). She also appeared in "Assignment K" (1968, with Stephen Boyd), "The High Commissioner" (1968, with Rod Taylor, Christopher Plummer, Lilli Palmer, Daliah Lavi), "Mackenna's Gold" (1969, with Gregory Peck, Omar Sharif, Telly Savalas), "Downhill Racer" (1969, with Robert Redford and Gene Hackman), "The Greek Tycoon" (1978, with Anthony Quinn, Jacqueline Bisset, Raf Vallone), among others. Enjoy Camilla Sparv's glamour!
