Just a big old meaty avalanche.
(Aug 2, 2012 at 13:35)
Don't forget all that carbon and aluminum. I am guessing that carbon bounces higher?

How to fix scratched stanchion hit google top search.

The first time I watched this I didn't realize my laptop was on mute, so the second time I turned the volume up thinking I'd hear a cliche' sound track along the lines of "let the bodies hit the floor" but instead that........ whatever it was yeah the volume went off quickly......haha
(Aug 2, 2012 at 10:28)
That's the music the megavalanche chose to be at the start of every mega (in the alpe d'huez, don't know the other ones) ...
(Aug 2, 2012 at 12:18)
Yep, if you've done the mega, you'd appreciate the music. Appreciate, not like.
(Aug 2, 2012 at 23:52)
That Music is like a wild going squirrel
(Aug 3, 2012 at 3:43)
.....or squirrels going wild. Either way it hurts
(Aug 2, 2012 at 8:42)
OK OK I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get neg propped for that but.... I can't help it
Why do english speaking media always call this (sick) race the Mega Avalanche? Just curious. And if you're still convinced it's the real name, just check
(Aug 2, 2012 at 9:03)
why english speakers say "mega avalanche" cause its not a normal word case to not say it like that. Maybe if the association is with say Meg Ryan or Meg Curtis its easier but its not normal syntax in this case :-p Like cookie Kastle... :-)
damn wildman wildhaber got a good beating at the start... not sure how he got up and finished in top 20 - reshpeckt!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 10:14)
what are you two talking about?...
(Aug 2, 2012 at 12:20)
This place is the first 'English speaking media' that's called it that. The others get it right.
(Aug 3, 2012 at 1:33)
Dirt Magazine? Just to give a second one. Now I wonder if it ain't the same story in german magazines... Alright, nobody cares! I just better go out and ride
(Aug 3, 2012 at 11:47)
Erm, no! Not Dirt:
(Aug 2, 2012 at 11:18)
All the people slating the music need to lighten up. Yeah it sucks, but it's part and parcel of the Megavalanche experience.
(Aug 5, 2012 at 17:47)
I love that the band's name is 666!!!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 10:18)
i know it's sometimes better not to change a winning formula. things that arent broken no need to get fixed. this race is ledgen, i agree, it's awsome and great. but please, in the name that is all good in on this planet, for god's sake,... i implore you, the organiser, please, oh please. i'm begging ...stop playing that track when the tape drops and the races starts. i cannot stand it anymore. think of the poor bastard that actually have to hear it because they are there.
(Aug 2, 2012 at 12:00)
I think it depicts the mayhem pretty well.......new ringtone? checkmark.
(Aug 2, 2012 at 12:51)
haha i think it should stay, it's part of the event, and the french are a good ten years behind the rest of the developed world in terms of music anyway. let them keep their backwards ways, I quite like them
(Aug 2, 2012 at 14:09)
Daft Punk, Air, Laurent Garnier, Justice, Stardust, St Germain (just to name a few),...not that behind.
(Aug 2, 2012 at 14:13)
(Aug 2, 2012 at 14:17)
Thank you google translate, but the song is yelling "fatal rhythm! Alarm!" in spanish. Seems pretty fitting to me.
(Aug 2, 2012 at 14:20)
oisans - i was joking, though you guys are a little behind, though i like that about france
(Aug 2, 2012 at 16:13)
That whole start strait was a crash waiting to happen. With the odds of a first turn, or in this case a first strait crash I would probably have just gone with the outside start line haha let the carnage take place while I slip on by the very outside un noticed. Kind of like our Government. Any race with this many people at once is bound to have a starting wreck and its bound to happen where everyone wants to go. Hope everyone was ok!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 8:16)
Ha!!! I think Dan saw that coming. He put his foot out several yards before the rider in blue came flying by....
(Aug 2, 2012 at 8:11)
Dan Atherton just keeps charging taking the outside. o yeah GO DAN!
(Aug 3, 2012 at 0:18)
If I was in that pile up, I soo would have grabbed a bike that looked better than mine and took off down the hill. LOL
(Aug 2, 2012 at 10:13)
Total recall can move over, now officially the bloodiest movie ever
(Aug 2, 2012 at 17:28)
Isn't it Hot Shots Part Deux?
(Aug 2, 2012 at 10:46)
If you wanna own yourself, go race that.
(Aug 2, 2012 at 13:45)
Best race on the planet??????????? Mountain of Hell might have the edge on that one!!!!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 8:12)
If you ever need Euro Music here's your track! Nice capture from different angles
(Aug 2, 2012 at 9:28)
Hahahaha so much fun to watch, good work
(Aug 2, 2012 at 9:07)
sucks to be the first one to slide out!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 10:01)
at the same time in the upper part there was also an indpendent crash
(Aug 2, 2012 at 13:11)
This is only a part of what makes this the best race on the Planet!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 8:33)
Why no feed here before of MA here in PB ? I think it´s unfair now you come only with this...
(Aug 2, 2012 at 8:36)
Sorry, just one short text new and no video at all
(Aug 2, 2012 at 10:38)
this shitty music is an insult for my intelligence!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 12:20)
it would suck to finish in dead last
(Aug 2, 2012 at 14:14)
Man, big 'ol rocks in the butt. That's gonna leave a mark.
(Aug 2, 2012 at 9:50)
(Aug 3, 2012 at 13:29)
well, you know what they say about tradition... "that" is tradition. Like when I'm in mexico and I start singing - the roof the roof, the roof is on fire!! hahahaha tekillya Please!!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 12:08)
So who was that who felt the need to bomb the inside like that before sliding out of the lead he held for only the slightest of moments?
(Aug 2, 2012 at 12:21)
That Rene Wildhaber , he's won it a few times.
(Aug 3, 2012 at 0:08)
not only a few times...6 times 1st and a couple of podiums the other years were he hasn`t won...
(Aug 3, 2012 at 4:34)
the one and only legendary Rene Wildhaber. Is like some sort of Chuck Norris on wheels, he will race XC and DH the same day and ride his road bike home.
(Aug 3, 2012 at 11:20)
Ahhh...... Thanx! With a record like that, I can see why he was so aggressive at the start. Hope he was OK afterwards.
(Aug 3, 2012 at 13:16)
Yup he's fine. Finished that Mega in 17th, which is impressive, had some deep flesh wounds I think.
(Aug 3, 2012 at 13:32)
it wasn't until wildman signed with trek did he start getting some reshpeckt from outside of small europe, and even then it was just a small part of europe who knew who he was... he's a farmer when he's not riding which means he's tough like nails. He's a ski instructor when he can't rip on the bike... I'd vote for Wildman!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 14:53)
If you manage to start first, why do you suck so bad at riding that you crash due to snow?
(Aug 2, 2012 at 12:13)
That first guy got rocked.. no pun intended
(Aug 2, 2012 at 14:22)
That first guy.... was it not Rene Wildhaber!
(Aug 2, 2012 at 17:49)
From the last camera angle it looks like he runs back up the hill past his bike.
(Aug 2, 2012 at 13:08)
somebody should not of been in front
(Aug 2, 2012 at 15:38)
Seda va Belly see ma!
