Watch: Tour de France GoPro footage is as awesome as it sounds

Tuesday July 7th, 2015

GoPro footage from bike cameras at the Tour de France has hit the Internet, and the results are truly awe-inspiring.

Especially for viewers who aren’t cycling aficionados, it’s incredible watching how cyclists remain so close to each other, even around turns, without flinching or over-adjusting.

It’s also terrifying see the results of some of the spills cyclists take when things go wrong, as you can see at the 1:53 mark in this video from GoPro before the Tour de France.
