The Friday Video

Well, it's that time of the week so here's another Downhill MTB video.

We again travel to France for the 17th running of the Megavalanche, held at Alpe d'Huez (yes, the same AdH made famous from the recent Tour de France). Qualifying took place on Friday 8th July where the large field of riders was whittled down to the best 38 from each of nine groups to narrow it down to 328 competitors at the mass start on Sunday. The race runs from the top of Pic Blanc (Altitude 3,300 mtr) down across the glacier to Allemont (Altitude 820 mtr) for a distance run of around 25km. 

This year's event was won by Remy Absalon - Commencal France. 2nd Jerome Clementz - Cannondale France. 3rd Rene Wildhaber - Trek Red Bull Switzerland.

Some stunning scenery, a pretty intense ride and real test of your biking skills......
