Remember this one? The race where you need iced water running through your veins, balls of steel, lightning reflexes, etc etc etc.. I must be speaking about the Urban Downhill at Valparaiso Cerro Abajo 2013. This is one of the most famous MTB dowhill races in the world … and it’s pretty obvious why! Enjoy Enrique Génova as he speeds down the track to the finish line.
Enrique Génova’s knuckle biting run
The contestants of this one need their heads looked at! and Enrique didn’t even win it! Here’s the winning run…
Marcelo Gutierrez is victorious
“So stoked about winning, was definitely a tight race, also a tough one. race times were close and such a good number of top riders went to this event. Honestly I was struggling with my fear during practice, looking at all those huge jumps; jumps without safety decks were making me have a hard time specially knowing that the WC season is coming soon. Thanks to everybody who helped me win this race, special thanks to RedBull Chile, Giant Chile, Tiago Souza, Julio and Victor VCA for the invitation,” said the jubilant victor.
“NUCKING FUTS!!! THAT WAS BANANAS!!!! I LOVED IT” … couldn’t have put it better myself!
