Every so often, clips crop up on the internet that have the power to blow ones mind. This weekend, just such a clip appeared.
Slovakian downhill racer, Filip Polc, mounted a helmet camera for a run at the Valparaiso Cerro Abajo in Chile several weeks ago.
The stint, which earned him his second consecutive VCA title, took in several narrow lanes an obstacles through the downhill event.
What started out as a small event several years ago, has since grown into a must attend race for downhill riders from around the globe.
The course is littered with danger and is very technical, demanding high amounts of skill and sharp reflexes.
At the end of day, Polc finished ahead of France’s Cedric Garcia and Mario Jarrin of Ecuador.
With all the talk amongst Formula 1 drivers about triathlons, cycle tours and the like, one wonders if Mark Webber, Jenson Button or Nico Rosberg would ever give this a go?
I fear the answer will most like be a swift “no”.
