While many riders in Pennsylvania will be busy working up the nerve to head out and ride in the winter cold, a few brave souls will be racing the eighth annual winter downhill race at Blue Mountain Ski Area in Palmerton, Pennsylvania, on January 5 at 10:30 am local time. Four racers per heat will compete mountain cross style reaching speeds of up to 50mph.

"I haven't done it and I don't think I would do it," said Jason Boris, the Race Coordinate to the Pocono Record after last year's event. "You have to have a lot of craziness."
