MOUNTAIN BIKING ON ROAD BIKES

Posted by Lester Perry on Wednesday April 13 2011


You may (maybe not) have noticed a lack of posts from me last week. Well I was off tripping around the South Island, with no bike! Weird, I know! Well now back to normal programming as of now (between moving house this week!)

Unless you are the most hardcore purist mountain biker who wouldn’t let anything other than mountain bike related material pass in front of your eyes then you probably have heard of or watched the legendary road race Paris-Roubaix. Well the above vid surfaced on the interweb yesterday, some stunning slow motion footage from this year’s edition (last weekend) showing just how brutal and ‘rougher than mountain biking’ the infamous cobbles on the course are. Sweet. For best results watch full screen!
