Video: Urban Mountain Bike Racing in Valparaíso, Chile

The 2018 edition of the Red Bull Valparaíso Urban Mountain Bike Race took place this past weekend, and as usual it was quite a show. In this video, we climb aboard a bike with winner Tomáš Slavik to watch him jump steps, ride banks, and avoid pedestrians on his high-speed run through the city center. This is a completely different style of mountain bike racing that is crazy for all kinds of different reasons. After watching this, I’d much rather be on a trail than trying to navigate these urban obstacles. As usual, it is a wild ride from start to finish.
