Video: Speedrider Outruns Avalanche

If you need a shot of adrenaline today, perhaps this video can help. It features speed rider Maxence Cavaldae as he’s skiing down a mountain in the alps. Along the way he triggers an avalanche – you’ll see exactly when that happens in the clip – and must out run it before finding safety thanks to his paraglider. It is a close call to say the least, and thankfully he had the option of sailing off a cliff and gliding along to safety.
