Check out this bonkers mass start glacier race in Saas-Fee, Switzerland.
Rowan Sorrell (who will be writing up his adventure for next months Dirt Magazine) said on Facebooks:
“Phew survived! That is something every rider should do once in their life, Saas Fee glacier race. I maxed out at 84.5mph max and I got smoked!”
Here are a few numbers:
Start height: 3500m
Fastest time: 7:31
Number of riders: 142
Icecreams eaten: 6
Winner: Charlie Di Pasquale (Any relation to squeaky comedian Joe?)
Speeds: Over the 80mph mark.
(We’ve got some Rowdog Snowdog helmet/chesty cam action coming up soon too)
