Something for the bike (bicycle) guys with a teaser for the Rover guys too!

Saw this video on Pinkbike of Red Bull Valparaiso Cerro Abajo 2013. I am sure that the video point of view does not do it justice but I still dig it and wish I had the skills (and balls) to try it! On a separate note, I also love the Red Bull Defender at the end of the video!

I wonder if my rusty beach cruiser with beer holder on handlebar could do that? I know I couldn't.

Sick vid!

Cedric is a mutant - guy almost dies a year ago and comes in 4th on this course?!?! Always the entertainer - ripping a manual down the street at 0:30, haha.

Course looks pretty crazy. I'd like to think I could make some of it. But I'd be going a fraction of how fast those guys go. First couple drops don't look too bad but that one at the end is nuts - you are totally blind coming into it and at speed.

Like that Red Bull 110 at the end too!

Wow. I feel a little less of a man having watched that. Actually alot. I think I will get some ice cream to make myself feel better now. Maybe play a video game.

I miss doing Downhill riding. There was a video a while back that started this all in Lisbon.

reminds me of Red Bull Romaniacs.

I'm with you! It's amazing how quickly you could bounce back in your younger years...I went to 7Springs about a year and a half ago and I can still feel my shoulder from a tumble I took!

couple of my fingers, shoulder and such still feel weird on cold days. I remember downhill racing on my hardtail Azonic frame and RockShox 3" DH forks.... 3"! that was huge back then.

Reminds me of when Matt Hoffman used to ride with the shoulder brace after he destroyed his rotator cuff
