Brutal Urban Downhill Mountain Bike in Morro Santa Marta – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is purely for fun, especially these days in which those downhill mountain bike rides are so popular. I think the source of the video clip is Root Rider Teve. Riders race though the winding paths and over the roofs of the Favela Dona Marta at the foot of Morro Santa Marta in Rio de Janeiro.

Slovakia’s Filip Polc took top honors in the Red Bull Desafio no Morro, an unprecedented mountain bike downhill competition inside a favela (slum) in Rio de Janeiro. Polc’s best time of 1:39.91 down the 760 meters of the favela’s alleys and staircases was enough to edge Brazilian Markolf Berchtold by over 1.5s. Britain’s Dan Atherton completed the podium with a top mark of 1:42.29. Dan’s brother Gee Atherton entered the competition in Brazil as the clear favorite, and confirmed those expectations by topping the qualifying session on Saturday. Race day didn’t equal lucky day for Gee, however, who ended up last among the 10 riders competing after suffering a flat rear tire halfway through the course. redbull.com
