Video: Crazy Ride Bombing Down Hills Of Valpariso, Chile

Filed under: Biking 

Downhill mountain biking through the forest is amazing, but this urban maze of drops, stairs, tight corners and mad dogs is downright intense (the opening wall-ride scene just sets the tone).

In the 9-minute video (jump to 1:00 to skip opening dialogue) shot entirely on GoPro HD Hero3+ cameras, riders Aaron Chase, Brian Lopes and Chris Van Dine fly through the narrow winding alleys and colorful streets of Valparaiso, Chile while while occasionally mingling with the locals. Yes, it’s a little longer than most YouTube videos. It’s worth it! —Sean McCoy
