British rider Nima Javaheri is aiming to set a new Everesting world record by ascending and descending the La Croisette climb of the Salève mountain more than 50 times. 

Scheduled to take place from Tuesday March 2 to Sunday March 6, weather permitting, a successful attempt would see Nima become just the fourth person ever to complete a quadruple Everesting, with the Briton setting a new elevation record of 50,000 metres in the process.
