Mountain Biker Speeds Down Ski Slope at 135 MPH

Last week, Eric "The Red Baron" Barone, a 52-year-old high-speed mountain bike specialist (apparently that's a thing) from France, sped down a crazy steep slope at 135 mph at the Les Arc ski resort and set the world record  for speed on a serial production mountain bike on snow (which is, apparently, also a thing). 

Don't know what 135mph down a snowy slope looks like? Well, the brief video clip below will give you an idea. Be sure to listen with your sound on and up for the full experience. Oh, and don't blink or you might miss it.
