Pedaling 45km/h over rooftops and through someone’s living room

More than 20,000 fans filled the World Heritage city hills during the 16th edition of Red Bull Valparaíso Cerro Abajo in Chile. 35 riders from all over the world took the qualifiers with 15 bikers making it through to the big final.

The track in the Chilean coastal city of Valparaíso is built overnight so the riders do not get to see it until race day ahead of their runs.

Czech rider Tomas Slavík performed another faultless run down the urban city track and was crowned champion for the second year in a row.

Results:

1. Tomas Slavik (CZE) 2:42,101
2. Matt Walker (NZL) 2:42,643
3. Matías Núñez (CHI) 2:44,504
