The early parts looked like stuff that I did when I was young. Then it got to a whole different level of stupid. I'm astounded by it. Biking on a wall - the first jump seemed to take the competitor by surprise - how long the run is - all of it combined together for a really awesome, crazy run.
Seen a link to those races before|

Nothing like dual suspension but the the steep staircase is crazy, not like anything else there was sane.
I like hearing the guy yell|

You can hear him muttering under his breath, shouting, yelling, laughing. He sounds psyched.

This urban series in South America has been around for a few years already.

That was incredible. Those are some brave/crazy spectators too.

The rider ramps over a wall and looks down from about 40 feet in the air at a landing ramp made out of a single sheet of plywood and.....about 100 people standing in a cluster all around the landing. If he hit the take off wrong the people down below would not be able to get out of the way. They would never let spectators near a course like that in the US.
