Video: Riding a sidecar up Eau Rouge looks terrifying

Taking the Eau Rouge Radilion complex is daunting enough in a car, so to imagine doing it on a bike is scary enough, never mind just hanging off the side of a bike someone else is in control of. 

But, apparently, rounds of the FIM Sidecar World Championship are held at Spa-Francorchamps, which just showcases how completely fearless sidecar racers are. And it’s not like they’re just doing some hot laps of the circuit, they’re dicing hard lap after lap as they battle.

Perhaps the most terrifying shot of this is the onboard looking back at the passenger, watching as they fling themselves around the bike, totally untethered to the machine. It’s just wild what people will do for fun.
