Quick update, the Megavalanche kicks off this weekend in Alpe D'Huez, France.

The Parkin Bro's are in attendance for DirtTV, so stay tuned for the spectacular highlights video early next week.

Also at the scene are the Monmouth Old Folks Cycling Collective, don't be fooled into thinking that just because these workshy doughnut eating spongers are camping in an old Dirt easy-up that they represent this sacred magazine in any form. These freeloaders are to be avoided at all costs if seen on the slopes, bars and streets of Alpe D'huez. (Have a good one lads)

Reporting in a more legitimate capacity will be Dirt blogger James Stock, all being well with French mountain wifi we should see some reports and photos soonish, including news of todays Sprint Avalanche.

Its either a herd of stampeding buffalo, or its the first wave of qualifying for Le Mega, followed by the poetic ice dance that is Le Mega start, some make it look easy others make it look like a night out in Pontefract. Filmed by the DownAndOut team in association with Victor 'effing' Lucas.
