“Waifish men on skinny tires confine themselves to the roads of the Alps”

Real men ride down snow and talus on bikes like these guys. The winner of this race descended 6,000 feet and 30 km in 40 minutes.

(I would be so busy trying to look at the beautiful mountain scenery, I would crash immediately. I know, I’ve already crashed riding my bike fast down rocky ledges while looking at the scenery.)

Story of the race here.
