The Megavalanche is an incredible mountain bike race down Alpe d’Huez in France during the middle of winter. The cyclists have to deal with snow, ice and slick conditions on their way to the bottom, which causes all kinds of issues, as I’m sure you can imagine. In the video below, filmmaker Ralf Schupp sets out to finish the Mega last. As you’ll see, he is in no hurry to join the furious start and he makes his way down the mountain in cautious fashion. Along the way, he stops to talk to other racers to learn about their experiences and what has caused them to drop from the race. Its a fun video for a crazy event for sure.
