How Tomáš Slavik Won the Legendary Valparaiso Cerro Abajo Urban Downhill

For the past 15 years, the city of Valparaiso Cerro Abajo has hsoted the most insane urban downhill race in the world. Thanks to its endless concrete stairways and tight, widing back streets, the Chilean city makes for some incredible downhill biking, allowing the world’s best downhillers to show off their skills in tight quarters.

This year’s 1.8 mile course had riders go through a house, launch off a roof, gap both a car and a school bus and descend countless flights of stairs.  The defending champion, Czech rider Tomas Slavik, took home a win with a finishing time of 2:42. That’s about a 40 mph average speed.
