Thanks for the heads-up! Was spectacular! Will watch it again today.

I'd say that most of the weekend warrior "racers" on this web site would not have made it up the 1st hill! I know this geriatric "dirt-biker" would not have made it 100 yards from the start, especially the year before, when they had to traverse a lake before hitting the first climb. Unbelievable skill levels. Didn't see too many big duelies, though!

Although they didn't mention it, I wonder what the statistics were for that event as far as broken bikes, broken bones, and riders taken off in ambulances. Totally crazy stuff. Imagine the "Jackass" movies you could make from the Go-Pro video footage!

Here is a link to POV footage from the winner, Johnny Walker. It's really scary how fast this dude is.

Jonny's kicking some ass this year, just beat Graham at Romaniacs too. I'm a big fan of Graham, dude seems super chill and funny. Little known fact Cyril Depres raced at Erzberg and won it a few times back in early 2000s.
