Winning run in an Insane urban downhill track VCA/Chile 2013

The most crowded urban downhill race ever, insane track, sweet stair gaps, huge jumps, high speed sections, tight sections is what Valparaiso Cerro Abajo 2013 was all about.

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.

Ps. Check out how I almost died on the last wall ride, landing over the right edge.

    Don’t know who is more crazy, the rider or the human air bags along the route watching.

    But then my friends and I stood four feet from the track on the infield backstretch at Oswego Speedway in New York watching the Supers go by at 130+ MPH. It WAS a rush!
