Video: Racing in the Streets – Urban Downhill Mountain Biking

This short – but sweet – clip takes us to the streets of Quebec, where mountain biker Finn Iles races downhill, showing us that you don’t have to go to remote areas to find a place to ride. Of course, while filming the clip at 5 AM, there isn’t much in the way of traffic or pedestrians to worry about either. But, the filmmakers cleverly give us an overlay of how busy the street is during other parts of the day, making it clear that we probably shouldn’t attempt this ourselves. It’s a radical line to say the least.
