Unicycling in Inside Sport.

In the Australian sporting magazine “Inside Sport”, January 1998 issue, page
127, there is a picture of a unicyclist riding around a decorative pole on a
24" unicycle with knobbly tyres, in a large flat area surrounded by flags of
several nations.

He is riding on snow, and has icicles hanging from his moustache and beard.

The pole is (at least, symbolically) the South Pole.

The caption reads: “At the Amundsen-Scott South Pole station, American Erik
Roseman reaches a milestone while unicycling around the world in much less
than 80 days.”

I am interested if anyone has more details about who he is, where he is from,
when it occurred (there is no indication in the magazine) and how his trek went.
The information is for the Been There, Done That unicycling web page.

The image is owned by “Ann Hawthorne/B & C Alexander”. I would like to get
permission to use it, but I am not yet sure of the procedure. If anyone has any
pointers, I would appreciate them.

Contact the magazine and explain your situation. They should be able to connect
you with the photo’s owner. With proper credit, I think she should be happy to
have you reproduce it in your page.

In one of the early USA Newsletters (1970’s), Bill Jenack wrote about a man on a
US Navy submarine doing this, but they were at the North Pole. They had busted
up through the ice, and this guy told about riding his unicycle around in a
circle at the pole. Bill asked for a picture, next time.

So it took twenty years (and halfway around the world, the hard way), but the
picture should be well worth it! I hope I get to see it soon.

I have been granted permission to reproduce the photo (of Erik Roseman riding
around the South Pole) from the photographer Ann Hawthorne. I hope to have it
on the Been There Done That page in a few weeks, when I get around to the
next update.

The photo was taken in the 94-95 season. Erik Roseman worked at the American
Base in the South pole, and now lives in Colorado.
