Location: Mammoths deserve to be cloned. From what I've seen in 'Ice Age' they are jolly good sports.
"This guy from Alaska just stopped by and was showing me a new bike he's selling that's made for snow and sand. Custom titanium built by the dudes who used to do Litespeed. Dude has some crazy ass stories about rides in Alaska - girl getting mauled by a bear during a 24 hour race, being holed up in a snow cave for 10 days in the middle of a long point to point race waiting for a storm to pass - just some gnarly shit. Folks are different up there."
