Anyone want to try this one?
I just found this on the news computer at the radio station where I sometimes work.
A French mountain-biker smashed his own record for cycling up the Eiffel Tower in Paris today, mounting the 747 steps up to the second level in just over 19 minutes.
Hugues Richard, from Millau in southern France, first accomplished the feat in 1998 with a time of 36 and a half minutes.
Richard has performed a number of similar stunts in order to raise money for a charity helping children with nevus, a skin-blemishing condition that can result in cancer.
