Downhill Mountain Bike Racing

>> Sunday, March 20, 2011

I recommend watching this video fullscreen while sitting only inches from your computer screen. And then try not to vomit with fear. Amazing.

It took him under 3 minutes to do something that would take me the better part of an afternoon:

All those stairs around the 1 minute mark make my heart flutter!

And I have to admit that I went back and paused it around the 0:28 point to see that poor dog BARELY make it out of the way in time!

one of the best downhill videos I have ever seen. At the rate at which I hit trees during XC riding, I wont be trying that course any time soon.

That is awesome! How scary! I like when he goes up on the wall!

If I'm going to run that course I would at least do it with fully functioning brakes. Did you hear those things squeak?

Check this one out.

Same or very similar course. Rider is wearing a suit, and he also almost hits a dog about 36 seconds into the run.

Crazy.

The dog is by far one of the best parts.

Also I swear I thought the video was over like 4 times then he just randomly took a turn into nothing.
