Video: Inca Avalanche Mass Start


Here’s a quick, drone’s-eye view of the mass start for the 2013 Inca Avalanche. Racers were challenged by bog, steeps, rocky and exposed terrain all along the 5000-foot descent.

We feel guilty because we know our entry check doesn’t cover anywhere near the true cost of putting on a bike race.
