Mountaineering - Everest in Winter: Txikon's team forced to dramatic descent

Mhm... when sherpas say let's go down I think a montaineer should respect their advice. 1. They know it better 2. They are working...
Alex Txikon tried to reach Everest Camp 4 yesterday but he failed and is back to the Base Camp. Chhepal  Sherpa got injuried in the descent.
Txikon gave a report, but the English version isn't that good, so I'll post here mine:

" [...] 
Things get complicated - and a lot - at about 7650 m, Chhepal comes and tells me to go down. The wind hits us more intensely, suddenly we got together and I tell everyone to trust me: the weather will change, and the wind will subside. Now it hits us from the west and it's expected from the north, northeast.
The cold is unbearable. I tell them to please use the bottles of oxygen that they carry. Usually they use 3 in a summit attack, but each one carries two bottles. "Pay attention to me and connect the regulators."
The wind blows more steadily and with much greater force. We are at 7800 m across the spur of Geneva. They don’t see it clear and I take the lead. I don’t know if I can keep a good pace for them since I don’t use artificial oxygen, but I think the intense cold doesn’t slow me too much. The wind sometimes makes us fall to the ground. It's really hard.
I speak to everybody, encouraging them, deadly trusting on them, very focused. I think for a moment of calling Aitor by radio, tp to say the weather is not as expected, but that means to expose my fingers, we are about 45 degrees minus 0 and the wind is about 60 km per hour! [...] Chhepal comes to me again and tells me: "Let's go down", I say them again: "Please, we'll do anything mad. The wind will stop." I say them: "Follow me".
The fixed rope is broken. I start equiping it again. We can already see Camp 4, but the wind is unbearable. We can’t do more than two steps without throwing ourselves to the ground. [...] 
We are in Camp 4. Norbu, Nuri and Pemba follow me. We can’t stand. I take out the first tent but even being four we don't manage to put it together. Waiting for Furba and Chhepal, we see that one of the rods has been broken. In the South Col, at 7.950 m, there are more than 50 tents... It’s such a bleak place! And there I go looking for a rod. I reach a tent, and there is a dead person! Fuck! You have many things in your head in such a situation, and one of them is that you can end up the same. [...] We throw some stones on it and I go to the South Col again. Arriving I have seen some epigas  tanks, nobody has got a sleeping bag, so extra gas is welcome! It means we'll spend the hours before the summit attack in a less unconfortable way... I reach the tent I had signed and I can’t believe it: another dead person! I don’t know their identities. A huge hug to family and friends!I drop the tank and we try again to assemble the tent, but it's impossible and we give up. We drop all the equipment and start the descent.
I tell Nurbu: "I don’t feel anything, please accompany me in the descent and the others will catch us. They’re all hooked up. It’s 5:30 p.m.: either we move, or our lives move to another level. I ask for a radio and after a moment of complete mess I get one. Finally I talk with the Base Camp and they confirm that the weather has changed and that we must get out of here.
I don't speed up, I feel responsible for my team. I asked them to come here and they put their lives at risk, so I don't descend until the last one has started. It’s difficult to calculate but the wind is constant and surely its intensity exceed 80 km per hour. [...] Nurbu, Chhepal and me decide to spend the night in Camp 3, the others go down. We melt some snow, just two sips each one and we put everything inside the sleeping bag. A second night without sleeping: I can’t stand the pain and the cold. 
[...] At 7.00 am Nurbu wakes up and suggests that we go down. [...] The worst is to puton my boots, in 10 minutes I'm ready and I go first, followed by Chhepal and Norbu. [..] Four rappels and I look up. I see Chhepal entering in the vertical and Norbu still very close to Camp 3. The wind was blowing hard all the time! [...] I come with stiff hands. I go rappelling with the gloves, it doesn’t give me for more; I’m in one of the fractionations; I’m with the mittens trying to pluck my safety carabiner to the next fractionation, the trigger has been hooked on the thumb of the glove … Something hits me [...] I don’t see anything. I’m only concerned that the safety carabiner is passed by the rope. I’m falling faster and faster. I know I’m going in an avalanche, and I know I’m going to have a good time! If I haven’t plated the carabiner I know that I will die and if it’s plated, I will stop after falling this fractionation that are minimum of 100 meters!
I think I hit the slope three times in these 100 meters. As I’m falling at a great speed, I finally stop short, I stop the fall, a screw, and I can’t breathe. I'm very overwhelmed; I barely feel a hint of air. [...] Finally, I begin to breathe! The avalanche begins to be of stones and hundreds of stones fall. I look up and see Chhepal holding up, Norbu has had more luck and didn't fall. I sit looking down the valley, hit by hundreds of stones, waiting for the death. 
[...]After almost ten minutes stones stop falling. I look up and I think like "Oh my god! I’m alive! One among a thousand!" With all my energy, I start to rappel again with the gloves, as fast as I can and Norbu and Chhepal follow me. We meet again at the bottom, and Chhepal is bleeding from the head, it has a cut. Tomorrow he's going to be evacuated to Kathmandu.
[...] I still do not know how I have not broken anything [...] We help Chhepal. [...] We get into the icefall. [...] The team is very touched. We lost Carlos, then Lakpa, now we are without Chhepal and only 5 left, I am determined to try again. We’ll see what happens next days."


Mountaineering: Too Windy Up there! Alex Txikon back to Camp 3

Alex Txikon:
"After reaching the 4C, the wind hasn’t given a truce and we have just gone down to the 3C until the storm subsides. Soon, more news."

Procycling - Trofeo Laigueglia: Felline: "On the final climb I was waiting for someone to attack, but no one did so I decided to go"

Fabio Felline:
"I am very happy. This is an area where I trained a lot when I was young, and my parents and fan club were at the finish. It is never easy to win a professional race and to win here, in front of them, is very special.
On the final climb I was waiting for someone to attack, but no one did so I decided to go. When I looked behind me, no one was on my wheel, and so I went à bloc. 
I knew that if I was à bloc then they would also be à bloc behind me. I was told I had 20 seconds when I arrived to the final flat kilometers. I think it was 30 seconds, or 25 at the finish, but it doesn't matter; what matters is to get the win. 
It has been more than a year since I have won a race, and for me my goal for 2017 was to win again. To do it in my very first race gives me a lot of moral for the rest of the season."

Mountain - Hiking Itineraries: from Rosano to Poggio Alberaccio

Image may contain: mountain, grass, sky, tree, outdoor and natureBirds decided it's spring and they are singing very loud on those trees, that are honestly green. 
The first flowers are blooming in the meadows, and the sun in the sky is definitely warm. I have dropped my son in Pontassieve for his cycling team training, driven to Rosano for a coffee and now I'm walking on the CAI track n. 1, climbing to Poggio Alberaccio, mostly on a steep dirty road, among hills covered in olive trees and oak woods.
Image may contain: sky, house and outdoorAncient rural houses and villas, the church of  San Martino a Prugnano (or San Prugnano) built in the early X century. A plaque remember the many villagers killed in an airstrike in 1944, whole families, children, a 5 months baby... You think: HERE? in the middle of nothing? Yep, because the USA or UK airplanes used to drop their unused bombs random to be lighter in their way back. 
Image may contain: 1 person, mountain, outdoor and natureBirds are singing in a silence almost unreal. The track gets steeper, I reach the crest in Poggio Masso Tondo and after a while I find a fork: left to Incontro, right to Case Romolo on the CAI track 00 and Poggio Alberaccio. 
What a beautiful view toward Florence! 
While I take a rest sitting on the grass a fat big hare dashes across the road: the privilege  of a solitary trekker! 
But no, I'm not alone... my love is always with me.
Image may contain: tree, plant, outdoor and nature"Your body is away from me
but there is a window open" as Rumi said
"from my heart to yours.
From this window, like the moon,
I keep sending news secretly..."
Nice words. A a nice walk this one, in spite I have forgotten my mountain boots: you can see here my shoes, not yet Nepali style fli-flops but still...

Time: 4 hours
Elevation: 400m
Where: Valdarno, Tuscany, Italy
Start and finish: Rosano (Pontassieve, Firenze). It's possible to arrive by train.
Summit: Poggio Alberaccio (550 m?)
Signals: CAI 1 (red and white)
Image may contain: shoesThings to see: The monastry in Rosano, the ancient church in San Prugnano, many rural houses, the view of Florence from Poggio Alberaccio.

Cyclocross: Vestingcross in Hulst

In the Elite Women's race Sanne Cant did it again. Tom Pidcock won in the Junior Men's race. 
Mathieu van der Poel won in the Elite Men's race, in front of Lars van der Haar and Wout van Aert.
My favourite Dutch didn't look that happy crossing the line, and I know: the victory was so close! still his performance was great and a very good sign for the next season, as he put van Aert far behind.

Lars van der Haar:
"Podium makes me happy! Had so much fun on this course! Brico Cross Hulst is one to stay please! Glad I could mix it up in the top today! 2nd"
