Blake’s Urban DH POV | Racing The Valparaíso Cerro Abajo Urban Downhill


Blake Samson was invited out to the Red Bull Valparaiso Cerro Abajo to try his hand at urban downhill racing! This event is crazy! The streets are shut down the evening before the race and this bustling Chilean city turns in to a race track! This iteration of the course sees riders taking on huge stair sets, road gaps and sprints, routing riders over rooftops and through houses 🤘

  2. Like they say in the TV adds: professional driver(bike racer) on closed course do not attempt this at home ! If you do have someone with cell phone and emergency number on speed dial. Full medical coverage and lost wages insurance are highly recommended.

  3. Are you faster on manual than with both your wheels on the ground? I've seen the race couple of years and winners never manual… unless they know they won't make it…

  4. Wow, one hell of a ride Blake, serious respect to you for even setting off on that run. Giving a commentary while doing so makes it all the more awesome.

  7. Blakey, I think I’ve figured out why you were last 😛 too much time with the front wheel in the air (i.e., having fun!)!

  8. Blake, you friggin' rock!
    I knew you could shred, and do it with style. You made all this look so easy, even talking through it and stunting like the freerider you are.
    Good stuff!
