Chamois antelope risk everything to get into cycling shorts
While searching around the great interwebs, we stumbled on this gem of a video. It shows 10 chamois antelope or mountain goats in the French Alps who get caught up in an avalanche. As you may know these little creatures used to donate their hides to make the chamois pads in cycling shorts. What’s that!? Didn’t know that animals like this have been involved in making cycling shorts? I guess you haven’t read our ultra-intriguing article on that subject (that article is here). These little creatures essentially made us humans invent chamois cream (thank you little chamois antelope; Doc’s would be nothing without you).
Anyway, 4 of the 10 get swallowed up by a mountain of snow…what happens to them? You’ll have to watch.
