Insane Urban Downhill Race
The Valparaiso Cerro Abajo Race, held annually in Chile, is one of the most extreme and insane urban downhill races that ultimately tests the full strength and capability of the riders.
The course consists of steep and narrow street corridors that riders must navigate through at fast speeds. Riders must also brave jumps, 15+ foot drops, uneven stair sets and the occasional stray dog!
This event is extremely exciting to watch as spectators line the track and are able to get within a few feet of the riders. This thrilling race also boasts a large crowd, drawing in an estimated 10,000 people. Watch a video of the winning run from the 2013 race and experience the madness first hand.
