Schadenfreude

“enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others”

Yup. Sounds about right.

edited to add : I like the idea of buying local. Don’t we all? this is something I’ve had my eye on for a while. This year’s model is even more sick than the last.

  1. beautiful.
    I especially like how the spectators get involved as live crash barriers.
    Very communal likes.

  2. That first video reminds me of a scene from that movie “Off Road to Athens.” I think they’re in Scotland, and the course is so muddy everyone is just eating it coming down this one rocky, slippery section. Sort of like riding at Mt. Snow after a few days of rain, or at Sugarloaf in Maine.

    Kinda miss the mud…

  3. First vid is in Moelfre, mid-Wales (U.K.) for the BUCS Mountain Biking Championships 2011.
    Race is for students only….kinda weird but would explain why they cant hold the course…..
