I can hardly imagine a more mental sport than downhill biking on a glacier!!!! How folk aren't killed doing that is beyond me.

Massive massive mentallists there. Love it....to watch.

I have done the mega twice.... dislocated my knee on the second attempt! The start and the glacier are bonkers!!! but in a laugh out loud fun kind of a way! ...........no where near as scary as reverse direction at knockhill when you don't know where your going! Smile
