Video Of The Day: Crazy Bikers Race Down Glacier


It appears as though crazy bike stunts and dangerous urban bike courses just aren't enough of an adrenaline rush anymore. In Saas-Fee, Switzerland, bikers push riding to the extreme as they pedal down a glacier in a death-defying race. A handful of the 142 riders mounted cameras to their bikes and helmets so us less adventurous (and perhaps more sane) types can get a feel for the crazy race. Riders reached speeds over the 80 mph mark as they dashed over ice and snow from a starting height of 3,500 meters to 1,700 meters. This year's winner, Charlie Di Pasquale, completed the race in 7:31. Anyone out there up for giving it a try next year?
