Bikers Ride Down The ‘Mountain Of Hell’ In France

Aug 09, 2017 at 4:30 PM ET

What you’re looking at is a hell of a mountain bike race in France. That’s why they call it the “Mountain of Hell.”

Every summer, 700 bikers gather in the French Alps to trek down the 8,000 foot descent in one of the world’s most extreme downhill freeride mountain bike races

It takes around 30 minutes to reach the bottom and riders reach speeds higher than 65 mph.

And before you ask, the answer is yes — people get hurt. A lot.
