Video: Megavalanche Mountain Bike Race Down Alpe d’Huez

The Megavalanche is an insane down-hill mountain bike race that takes place each year on the sloes of Alpe d’Huez, one of the most storied climbs in the history of the Tour de France. But in this case, the riders are racing down a much different route, and as you’ll see in the video below, it is one wild ride. Carnage is often the best way to describe the early stages of the ride, and it doesn’t get much easier as the riders descend. This is one event I’m more than happy to watch on video, and leave the actual racing to those who are crazy enough to ender it.
