Couch Potato Alert !!!

So you like to sit on the couch and watch football games, basketball games, soccer games, NASCAR, and more.

Well, this is a 'more' that you will definitely want to watch.

So pull up your computer (or hook it to your TV if you are really 'high tech') and watch this.

What is it? you ask.

Well, it is called the "VCA 2010 Race Run" and is a downhill bicycle course.  Yes, I know, 2010 is last year but I just happened upon it recently.

You are going to be amazed.

The Video is 4 minutes 36 seconds long but not all of it is the race.

The Race itself is about 3 minutes and 9 seconds.

The rest of the time, after it is over, the cyclist signs the race board, gets his picture taken, and talks with a spectator so you can stop when the race is over and you won't miss much.

But, WOW, do not miss the downhill run itself.  It is scary and fun -- well, fun if you are sitting at your computer or smart phone and not ON the bike.

OK, ready? Great! Now put on your virtual helmet and HERE'S THE LINK
