Amazing POV – downhill MTB bike race in Brazilian favela


Ok guys, this is the start-gate of the world’s
gnarliest street race. We’re about to descend 800 metres into the
favela. This’ll be fun. Ready, bro? Okay, so that’s the first step down into…
the fast step section here, coming to this bit absolutely lit. Blind-dropping to there. Smash a big left, right arrow on the church
roof. Dropping into a fast step section. Really hard braking down here.
To a tight right. Straight into a tight left off a drop. Can
here the crowd absolutely crazy down here. Look at the water on the steps, only making
braking a lot harder right now. Into more wood sections. More wet wood here
to brake on. This corner is just full of mud and trash, really hard to ride.
Took a little obstacle of wood. Bit of a sprint to get on. Can see how tight this is right
now. Lots of martials pointing which way to go.
Smash a tight left, look at how steep this wood step section is.
Coming into one of the gnarliest step sections. Huge drop on the outside, so you don’t want
to get that wrong. Bit of a sneaky line there. Smashing down
more steps, really hard to brake on this wood section, so you really got to kill it.
Bit of a party going on there. It’s all on off-camera right! Nice.
Bit of a fan club of girls there, like it! Always good to have ladies present.
Bit of help from the crowd there with the direction. See the step sections. Super low,
you’ve got to duck down here. Can here the crowd absolutely crazy down here.
More steps. Light’s kind of good as well. Think we’re
nearly there though. More gnarly steps section. Max is doing a one-hander. We got a crowd
here. We’ve got to stop driving to the finish.
