    Anyone up for a little "urban" downhill racing?

    Check this video out. Hold on to your hat. Also note that the guy with the helmet cam appears to be wearing a business suit.

    Leash law? In Chile??

    It happens more often than you might think on even the most prestigious cycling race in the world (Le Tour).

    Watching that made me sweat.

    I'd be the guy taking on a utility pole head-on.

    I think I'd get a high ankle sprain just walking down that course.

    One of the best videos posted in a long time. It brought back a lot of memories of faceplanting over my handlebars as a kid.

    HOLY. CRAP.

    *edit* I freaking cracked up when I saw the decription below the video: "...more extreme than skydiving out of an exploding F-18 piloted by Charlie Sheen - while chugging a 2 liter of Mountain Dew."

    Hahahah!

    That's awesome. I love that they took downhill mtb racing and put it in an urban setting. They made the course almost identical in difficulty to what you would do in the woods.
