A Bike Race Of A Different Kind

Posted on the 19 July 2011 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
While the climbing and the descents in Le Tour will be quite impressive over the next few days, the riders in that race have nothing on the guys in the Megavalanche, a race that also takes place on the Alpe-d'Huez but features a distinctly different kind of riding. Check out the video below, which comes our way courtesy of the Adventure Journal, to see what I'm talking about.
The winner of this race was rider Remy Absalon, who took 40 minutes to cover the 20 miles and 9000 foot descent to the finish line. Crazy and scary!
