Saas-Fee Glacier Downhill Race 2012

Check out this bonkers mass start glacier race in Saas-Fee, Switzerland.

Rowan Sorrell (who will be writing up his adventure for next months Dirt Magazine) said on Facebooks:

“Phew survived! That is something every rider should do once in their life, Saas Fee glacier race. I maxed out at 84.5mph max and I got smoked!”

Here are a few numbers:

Start height: 3500m
Finish: 1800m
Drop: 1700m
Fastest time: 7:31
Number of riders: 142
Icecreams eaten: 6
Winner: Charlie Di Pasquale (Any relation to squeaky comedian Joe?)
Speeds: Over the 80mph mark.
Soiled pants:43

(We’ve got some Rowdog Snowdog helmet/chesty cam action coming up soon too)
