Watch: 1500 Mountain Bikers Race Down A Glacier

Every year, hundreds of mountain bikers descend on the legendary Megavalanche course in the French Alps to compete in a mass start downhill race. The course starts at 11,000 feet, high on Alpe D’Huez’s Pic Blanc, before descending nearly 9000 feet back to the valley floor over glaciers, snow, and gnarly singletrack. The race takes endurance, incredible bike handling skills, and a whole lot of luck to finish. 

This year’s winner was EWS racer Damien Oton, with a time of 38:55. Check out his POV angle from the start.

Vinny T’s POV From Royal Hill FEST is Complete Insanity

While the rest of the world is getting amped about Crankworx, the unsanctioned FEST series continues to do whatever the hell it wants—and we love it. Created by the riders for the riders, the Fest just made a house call at Nico Vink's mountain bike and FMX course, and things get rowdy. Vink sculpted an impeccable line of jumps and the riders celebrate by sending it big. To get a sense of the amplitude, preview the course from Vincent Tupin's eyes as he hits two of the lines—any guesses how
