We’ve seen the Colombian downhill mountain biker Marcelo Gutierrez’s terrifying headcam footage of his ride down 1,000 steep, stone steps. Now there’s a new video of his recent race — again from a helmet camera point-of-view — in an urban Chilean town.
It’s just as intense.
The Contour Camera video description of Gutierrez’s footage calls him “the most unique downhill mountain bike racers you will ever see.” In his own description of video he uploaded, Gutierrez describes the Valparaiso Urban Downhill competition as “the most crowded urban downhill race ever, insane track, sweet stair gaps, huge jumps, high speed sections, tight sections.”
The seemingly fearless biker also wrote that he struggled with the thought of some of the stunts 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,” Gutierrez wrote.
Gutierrez won the race but called it close. Watch the footage:
