The Tour de France Starts Tomorrow, Let’s Watch Three Minutes Of Gnarly Crashes

Yeah, I know! It’s that time already. Every year, the initial stage of the Tour de France creeps up on my as if I wasn’t paying any attention whatsoever to cycling. Then I realize I wasn’t paying any attention whatsoever and then I carry on with my life.

But this video, man, this video features some pretty violent crashes. The best parts are when the cyclists wipe out. Which is all the parts. Truthfully, though, I love it when the guys are going around a big curve or bend and they just run keep on going straight – right off the road and down an embankment on into a huge boulder. Ha. It’s funny because it’s somebody else getting hurt.

Happy Tour de France-ing, bicycle racer guys!
