Urban bike races don’t get any more crazy than the Valparaiso Downhill, which is held annually in Valparaiso, Chile. As the name implies, the entire course runs downhill, but that doesn’t convey just how wild things can get. Riders will have to navigate down narrow flights of stairs, over ramps, along fences and so much more. The race demands nerves of steel and plenty of testicular fortitude to say the least.
This year, the winning run was completed by Marcelo Gutierrez and the entire ride was captured by a Contour action camera. You can check it out below, just remember to breathe as you watch it all unfold.
