Red Bull Valparaiso Chile 2014 Urban MTB Race

For the past 12 years there has been a race on the twist­ing, steep, and crowd­ed streets of Val­paraiso, Chile. For moun­tain bike rid­ers it com­bines all the ele­ments of rid­ing that test their skills: big airs, tech­ni­cal turns, speed in the flats, and han­dling obsta­cles such as stray dogs wan­der­ing onto the course.

The win­ning rid­ers need skills, of course, but per­haps more than any oth­er race this is a podi­um that dis­plays the rid­ers who have guts. And no video cap­tures the guts bet­ter than this one.
