They finally figured it out - men cycling on an open road is boring. But add some obstacles: cars, bikes, barbed wire, random spectators, all out to stop the riders by any means necessary, and we've got ourselves a sport. A living video game. Here's why we've been loving the first week of DeathFrance 3000.
We watched yesterday's spectacular video of a car running a couple of riders off the road, but we initially failed to notice Johnny Hoogerland in the back, get sent flying off the road only to stop gruesomely short, tangled in a barbed wire fence. He suffered deep lacerations, but somehow finished the race. He's a man.
