    This video is an excellent example of a youtube clip that needs to be played at 1080P on an 80+ inch big screen television and through a serious home Hi-Fi system with decent speakers:

    Great music, great videography and great scenery:

    Got questions.
    Where are the motors?
    How come they are on the wrong side of the road?
    How do their brakes hold up going down?

    Unfortunately those guys are doing it "all wrong" not using an engine assisted pushbike.

    They are on the proper side of the road. Unfortunately 85% of the world (American included) drives on the wrong side of the road.

    They don't use their brakes, hence a lot of them crash in spectacular fashion with brakes that are next to useless and riding on ridiculously thin tyres which are also next to useless; significantly contributing to the crashability factor of these flimsily constructed road racing bicycles.

    Wow, I wonder if these guys also go skydiving minus the parachute.
    Just chuck brains in that dumpster over there before boarding.

    The Tour De France is always good for spectacular footage of road race bicycle riders crashing en masse, but on the downhill sections it raises the stakes because those guys hit 60 miles an hour . When they do go down, a lot of them peel away half the skin on their bodies as they are wearing what could only be considered "token clothing", not to mention shaving any exposed body area to further reduce any semblance of masculinity in a sport that's paradoxically dripping with testosterone enhancers.
