Obviously bored with the ease of dominating DH mountain biking for as long as we can remember, Nico Vouilloz has swapped max travel for 'Max Power' in his Group N3 Renault Williams Clio.

Nico has been selected to race in the legendary Monte Carlo rally which begins today, but has already had an outing in the Rally Of Vence where he was leading his group before shifting problems sidelined him.

Fo more information, murky shots of him arriving at a car park last night and race results as they happen head for the Vouilloz racing team website .

There's even a thrilling chat about tyres from the French fella, but no mention as to whether the car is conventionally powered or pedal propelled.
