From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 30 June 2015

'Everesting' is a challenge in the cycling world, and one young Aucklander has just become the youngest New Zealander to complete it. We're not talking about cycling up Mount Everest, that's undoubtedly a step too far. Instead, it's a matter of cycling up a hill, again and again, until you've achieved the equivalent height of Mount Everest. Liam Cappel is only 16-years-old and he did this by tackling the 330m-high Whangapoua Hill on the Coromandel Peninsula.
