Valparaiso Urban DH Wallride Crash 6

Not all who race DH are ready for some street riding. Too slow, too slippery and too short on this wall ride attempt. OUCH!

    Love it! America sucks with all the stupid police, we should have races like this in the US "underground" or all move to south america

    Big bird, is this the first year you've seen this race? I mean... that's like asking the Rampage to have smaller features.

    Big Bird - there could have been a bit more (guardrails/wood/landings/space/padding), and a bit less (people/dogs/open drainage/cables/flat landings/metal railings on incredibly narrow stairs)....but then it wouldn't have been VALPARAISO, now would it? LOL.

    This event is totally mad. They wouldn't get approval for any of those "features" (=deathtraps) in the US/Europe....

    I don't think that I'd hit that as it is myself. I don't want to sound like the safety police, but there could have been a bit more landing.
