Don’t know a lot of details about this video, but obviously it is a bicycle race somewhere in France and when the pack crosses a set of railroad tracks, half of them get caught behind the gates when a high speed passenger train comes by. You’d think they’d have rules for something like that, but then again it is cycling and also well, France.
You know how, when you’re riding a bike with someone else and you feel like they’re getting too close and it makes you swerve away and you feel like you’re going to lose control for a second? Okay, multiply that by about 100 people on bikes, try and everyone is going about 20 mph. Yup, not a good combination. Except, of course, if it’s caught on camera for your enjoyment.
