Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 7.38.50 PM

I posted this on Instagram last night, as a challenge to my SoCal readers who happen to enjoy a lot of climbing. If you find this Jackal, you can win. Just do the following:

-Shoot a photo of it on Instagram, tag it #TheRadavist
-Then, email me the road name and an overall photo of the top of the climb.

Shibby Dude claimed this one! Good hustle man! Email me and I’ll get you a fat care package.

I Just Got Home
Wish-I-Was-Back

… and I already wish I was back in Los Angeles, riding these roads. I really have become enchanted with that city and the people who call it home. Some of my closest friends live there and over the year’s, they’ve shown me what a magical place it really is.

Many thanks to my friends back in LA for showing me a good time. You know who you are!

I’m stoked to see this as a Vimeo pick!

From weighing 6 stone and being too weak to walk 5 years ago to taking on one of the most savage cycling records ever undertaken, Spindle Productions followed James’ remarkable journey.”
