Crazy Urban Downhill in Chile

Postby DRKBC » Sun Mar 17, 2013 12:31 pm

The mountain bikers out there will have probably seen this but if you haven't it is incredible. It is a downhill mountain bike race in an urban setting sponsored by Red Bull.

I have seen that before and those walleyed cameras still make my head hurt while watching vids like these.

Doesn't leave a lot of margin for error does it.

Downhill racing is dangerous to begin with but no question coming off your bike in this event wouldn't be pretty.

I remember watching one of those urban downhill videos (might have been last year or a year prior), but the guy was flying down there and dog ran out in front of him.

Rapido, Rapido, Rapido...

Was nuts.
