There were a lot of crashes at the Rio Olympics this year in the Men’s Cross Country Mountain Bike Event. You may not have seen many in the video coverage but that’s largely because they were focused on the top riders who, for the most part, managed to keep it upright. The course wasn’t overly technical but it had its share of technical bits. A bit of rain the night before added a bit of moisture to the course also to keep riders on their toes. Here is a great compilation of crashes at this years Olympics.
It would be something to bomb down a bobsled track in winter with it covered in ice but riding down one would be quite the ride too! This is in Saravejo, the site of the 1984 Winter Olympics.
