Video: James Bowthorpe in Norway

Epic landscapes plus Mogwai soundtrack

Round-the-world cyclist James Bowthorpe headed to Norway earlier this year for a photoshoot for The Rig Out, an alternative men’s fashion magazine.


While he was there, photographer Antony Crook decided to make a short film inspired by Bowthorpe’s 2009 GlobeCycle circumnavigation record attempt.

Called 30 Century Man, and shot on location in Tromso, with music by Scottish post-rockers Mogwai, Crook says: “I wanted the film to somehow give a sense of what James had achieved and the idea of him being alone, somewhere wild and isolated.”
