A Massive Pileup on the “Mountain of Hell” Bike Race

There’s a bike race that takes place in the French Alps every year called the “Mountain of Hell” . . . and here is a video of a massive pileup that went down soon after it started on Sunday.  Luckily, there were no serious injuries. The beginning of the race looks like a crash waiting to happen.  There are 700 riders taking off at the SAME TIME, and they’re traveling down a snowy glacier.  All it took was one guy to fall and that caused a chain reaction.

If you’re into extreme sports, the race itself is pretty fascinating.  It’s a 15-mile course of snow, ice, rocks, and dirt . . . and the guy who won it this year was clocked at 78 miles per hour.  Keep in mind, he’s going down a mountain.
