    Pisgah Productions Needs to Step It Up

    Because there's a new masochist race promoter on the block!

    The Death Race

    I especially like how racers carried a bike for 9 hrs without wheels, get the wheels later, dive in icy water to retrieve thier chain, and then get to ride for 5 minutes!

    I have no sound on my work computer so it's very hard to follow the video.

    At least it would keep people from riding the hiking trails.

    Not that I've ever seen anybody doing that or anything...

    Yeah, it's strange. But oh well.

    Next to triathlons, this looks like the best way to suck the fun out of riding a bike.

    "Whoever finishes this race is an extra ordinary person." How about extraordinarily stupid!!
    I don't get these type of events. Of course I don't really get racing either...

    Except, The Death Race is not a bike race...that particular year bikes were involved.
