wow, never saw this video of a guy ripping it on the snow going over 200 km/hr. this is the same fella whose bike broke in half while he was riding down a volcano doing 220km/hr.

Here's some video of him including most recently from april 15, 2013. Super speedy snow riding.

That's at a ski resort called Les Arcs in the French alps (not far from where I live). It was originally designed for the speed skiing event for the 1992 winter olympics, but is now used for all kinds of speed events. I've skied down it before, though not at speed. It's steep!

Man, if this guy had a 'bent (or even a velomobile) he'd really be moving!

Wow, humans are amazing, not sure if any of you guys ever hit that speed in a car, it's damn fast.

I hope he knows when to quit though.

There is a point in life when involved in anything extreme, you gotta know when to say, enough been there, done that.

Thanks for posting that.

Nifty video, certainly the fastest riding on snow I've ever seen. There's a sometimes icy hill I go down on my winter commute that feels that fast to a chicken like me...

There must be something in the French air, because back in 1962 Jose Meiffret set the record for motor paced cycling and PEDALED his way to 204 km/hr! You have to see pictures of his bike to believe it.

Bike Pics:

A video in French from an earlier attempt where he reached 186 km/hr. Well worth watching. Warning: there's a scene showing a badly injured Meiffret being carried of the track after an accident.

I watched but then I found his crash video and watched it on loop, again and again. Balls of steel!
