Amazing stuff, but it just goes to show that like the rest of us these great athletes have bad hair days. A sponsorship deal with Head and Shoulders may be waiting in the wings........... Steve

Saw the film a few months back - technically very impressive but the brothers I though were depicted in rather a poor light in the film - made them seem really boring.

One is a down to earth family man, the other a god amongst men that takes his shirt of without prompting but especially when girls are near. And it is The Huberbaum, not Alex and Thomas, they are one! I did witness what is under those leather trousers once in Tuolumne. But sadly I didn't have my camera.
