The Valparaiso Cerro Abajo

The Valparaiso Cerro Abajo is a stunning downhill bike race through the streets of Valparaiso on the west coast of Chile about 50 miles from Santiago.

The race, one for brave trick cyclists, features numerous obstacles, high jumps and trick sections as well as the countless steps through the village paths on route.

The race is run in February at high speed, through the streets of Valparaiso, to the appreciation of the watching crowds. In the below video (about 30 seconds in) you will see even the local stray dogs get into the spirit of things, making themselves into moving obstacles along the route ;-)
