French hill climb madness...

Postby Paul » Fri Sep 16, 2022 12:17 pm

I love the French, their style, their food, their beautiful country and fabulous roads. They are, however, certifiably mad as a box of frogs, as can clearly be seen in this YouTube video of one of their motorcycle hill climb events:

When you see some of those bikes with the viciously studded rear tyres tumbling down the hill side after their former pilots, you've got to think that this could all end very badly. Anyway, 10 out of 10 to all of the participants for risking their necks for a taste of glory and our entertainment, and I hope you enjoy the video.


You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Brilliant video Paul, as you say, they're all crazy!

Particularly enjoyed the enthusiastic use of the fire extinguisher :D

Thanks for posting.
