Crash carnage at Megavalanche Reunion 2012 – Nico Quere loses his bike!

The Megavalanche Reunion is a mass-start enduro downhill held on the island of La Réunion in the Indian Ocean. Unlike its sister race in the Alps, there are no sketchy ice fields or glaciers to traverse – but the carnage factor still remains the same!

Check out this start line helmet cam footage from France’s Nico Quéré (Commencal Superteam), who ended up getting 17th place despite being parted from his bike just seconds after setting off! His countryman Nicolas Lau (Cube Action Team) went on to take the win.
