crazy aero - on snow...

Crazy stuff. 223 km/h without even pedaling, with mtb tires on snow.
I guess the helmet would feel a little warm for Triathlons, but the "storage-box" behind the "saddle" looks kind of promising.

Why snow?

Probably just to even out the bumps. Would be hard to make such a great and huge slope at high altitude (thinner air = more speed), so using a mountain side works great. Since the mountain side would be rough and rocky, just wait for it to snow and then pack it down until it's firm. Then you get a great slope at 1/100th the cost of building one.

Damn! I would like to see how long it took him to come to a speed slow enough to stop

Did you notice the disc brake on the front wheel?
Bringing a bike from 200kph + to a stop would need some F***ing hot binders

Curious that we didn't see him stop. ;)

I like the aero pant legs, but may be difficult to remove in transition. :-)

If I find a race that's all downhill after the swim, I'm definitely wearing this.

My first thought was, Is that Hanz or Franz mounting the bike.

I absolutely love the idea of going fast downhill without having to pedal up it.
