mountain bike race by bus ca of some cyclists to see what we are doing well one of them is Gabriel Gabriela Cho Venini who just came off a winning streak and it's his first time here actually but let's see if we can continue that winning streak very excited to see that we're in a bit of a delay there, we should have introduced the cyclists, you're going to show up shortly, but looking at the crowd, look at that crowd we have on the street, it gets bigger and bigger every year, watch the show end in the course here. that's what the flower shop is called.

I think you were telling me before the winner, as he passes by, if he has a substantial lead, he might even receive a bouquet of flowers. Yes, thanks, if you're going to win. pick your flowers, so what are the expectations for today? Claudia, as usual in those city races in South America, a lot of people, well, the weather there, we can't complain I would say, but the weather seems as perfect as we can be looking at the port right now this is the main port on the western side of south america a huge port and the biggest port in chile oh you did some research i tried you know i studied actually you know but coladas these elevators you see going up and down the city i look.

More Interesting Facts About,

replay urban downhill mtb red bull valpara so cerro abajo 2019...

I did some research on those which are quite fascinating so how steep are the roads and the driveways and the sidewalks are so steep here that's why we have the hundreds of thousands of stairs they were running on today but they have them up looking straight ahead back to our writers to see who we have there is Gabrielle Chava Nene from Brazil first time here and this is actually Johannes Fishbach from Germany former four cross pro still but now switched to super fast

downhill

there too next up here and then we're looking at Pedro for the theory, he's certainly a rider to watch out for right now in the world of

downhill mountain biking in the wow world, we're getting this mixed up.

Matías Núñez, actually got injured and practice can't run today. and then the man the myth the legend you can't count them two time winner here on defending champion Tomas Slavik via the Czech Republic let's see what's happening to us today in Slovakia but quick let's take a look at what's our course today Claudia shows us some of the features of this course well the graphics will guide us through it they said there is less pedaling on the track this here I think it's actually the same track just added more technique features which then make it less pedaling and well as you can see there are still a lot of straightaways but one of them key features is those stairs there they get very very narrow towards the end and I wouldn't want to be racing through those narrow because you just have to make sure you don't trick your handlebars sideways by checking the travel before at the bottom of those Boccaccio stairs is there if you have downhill mountain bike bars with Full I'm talking 800 million or months if there's only an inch maybe between each mooring the bars are very narrow.
replay urban downhill mtb red bull valpara so cerro abajo 2019
Actually, I would consider cutting the bars for that section, but you know a lot of features, like you see here, a lot of jumps, they're pretty big, a lot of fun. they look but in the end not only the most skilled rider will win this one he's also the fittest because he keeps pedaling quite a bit yeah and the final features on that course i mean we have the bin you jump out of. the flower shop but you can't count the bus an 8 meter space on that one probably with the speed you arrive at 8 meters is not much I hope for the sake of these passengers that sounds like a very big job looking at the hot seat on the screen that looks comfortable we actually have a new addition this year instead of just one on the hot seat now we have it for the three of the top three riders looking up on the starting list we're stuck kicking today with win masters out of new zealand mark Mauricio hakuna by way of chilean Rojas Chile again Beto Nicholas out of chile and then Jonas Fishbach out of Germany Adrian Laurent Geronimo PES Pedro Fiorina and Thomas Slovak round out is the fastest qualifier of the day through the Czech Republic with a 251, that's two seconds ahead of everyone else.
On a track like this he beat his fastest time last year and this year he's a bit slower, but the course is 200 meters longer so I have a feeling he might be getting there. in play here and you see the strong peddlers are wet are there so good I wouldn't say it's an easy trick it's still going to be very gnarly if you want to hit all that tech at full speed no it's not and I was reading before that the course is 1.9 kilometers long, it seems longer than that, but that's because of all the stairs and the 237 meter drop, that's a lot of drop in two kilometers, I really wonder how they built that city. your look at our hot seat and what's happening live there if you're with us on Red Bull TV you're in for an action packed day I'm talking about Valparaiso today Red Bull Valparaiso Sarah Down below that's what we want you're looking at today if you're at home will wait for the info waiting for everything to kick off make sure you jump on and download the app and by the channel script Oh download the Red Bull TV app for free and enjoy some amazing content anywhere anytime on all those devices watching all those gopros y'all ready for our first master driver winner to come hurtling through that bin oh these spectators should watch the race and not just their screens ok no race yet but look at that city, although it is absolutely fantastic, the rolling hills of Valparaiso are just a beautiful sight, the architecture and colors that you see in this city are amazing and this is actually more or less the start of the

2019

mountain bike season.
It's the first big event and we were talking about it being the start of a downhill season of sorts. It's urban downhill, so it's a bit different, but this is really the start of all mountain biking this year. I mean we have a lot of four cross drivers we have a lot down here below our feet we have some of the top level World Cup drivers here today yeah and you know just two weeks from now we are going to kick off the championship red

bull

pumptrack world championships also in Chile, then a few weeks later Crankworx in New Zealand, I've heard rumors that some of these riders won't even leave, they're just going to hang out in Valparaiso until the pumptrack starts.
With just over two months to go until the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup kicks off, don't forget you can catch all that action at both the Pumptrack World Challenge and the UCI World Cup downhill course. Red Bull T vs Red Bull T v.com go there for all the amazing info and best content looking up looking out the starting gate right now we're gearing up we're just a few minutes away from dropping our first riders of the day and then it's nice to be very full throttle and full throttle all afternoon so first out will win masters maybe she's doing some wheelies somewhere she's probably filming her next instagram video but talk about win win he's one of my favorites because he's always there we're going to win he's out the gate here we go down look at him hard on the pedals he's known for his enduro racing so you know he's not afraid to match the power from which it comes even though it wasn't. making him err to start hard was getting an extra race start it's called tactics and secrets uh-huh looking at our course we got the first turn flat track we saw a couple of riders go down last year but no problem winning right now going down rough our first feature which will be over Jessica's yard but wins through New Zealand going up the first few stairs on the course Boccaccio's corner be prepared it's probably going to throw off some riders today I saw it in practice and qualifiers It's causing some trouble some people but don't win no now look how narrow it gets towards the bottom of these stairs right here it's getting narrower and narrower you're going to be so close your hand to those posts with your handlebars every time it catches me each time but going down through yes that's through the hostel the local hostel yes we are going through that course today which is about the only dirt pickup seat on the course today, the rest is all concrete. the full width of a downhill handlebars if you're really going to go through the house i was told it's only a few inches on each side not as narrow as the stairs but not much wider r down over the wd drop- 40 you can hear the dogs in the background when the masters pedal really hard you can see him not at the moment but you could see him pedal really hard you see there are so many flat sections it's already going to burn half way along the course here you're going to get burned the legs.
They were talking about the average slope again, the 45% range, so it's very steep there, but when you want to get to the top step and get into that low 250 250 range like Thomas Slovak that's you. you have to be on the pedals all the time yeah you know the steep sections are only on the stairs but those streets here i mean they are steep but you're still going to be pedaling as hard as you can it seems like sometimes As we get into the back half of our ride, you can really see drag come into play and that's exactly where downhill city racing is so tough because we're not used to racing on tarmac, we're used to dirt and to find that limit where the grip is in the way that's where it gets really tricky and that's probably also what win masters is struggling with well i guess i guess judging by this come on yeah when i get up doing it For the crowd, I guess those tires aren't necessarily built for racing.
On pavement like this it's more offroad tires yes I am I think the best ones will pick different tires not just do it for the crowd what a showman himself yes I hope the best riders in this race use special tires not just normal downhill tires ok so you think they are actually running a little different set up than they would in a traditional downhill scenario hi I'm pretty sure because you need to toughen up your suspension with all that pedaling is no use having the suspension fully flex no roots or rocks on the trailers just stairs so you can have it stiff looking back on the trails take a look at some of wins ru highlights like you were expecting a lot and there's witness problems right there we don't know if there was some gravel on the road but if there isn't again here that grip is so hard to touch on the road when you.
I'm not that used to it and I would imagine just from the type of riding I do the grip changes from top to bottom, of course you're going to be riding different types of pavement and tarmac so it will change throughout the ride. I guess that actually plays out there, but we're going back to the beginning here. We are looking for Mauricio Hakuna from Chile. 31-year-old in the top three. Will we see another flying start here? Their time is their time is already running so I'm wondering well I have a feeling they can correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know it's like UCI downhill they have to cross that plane there actually a trigger they cross as they walk out of the door and that's what officially starts their time well I see a light t beam and they're a laser which is probably what will time break it but we haven't seen the writer walk out the door still, well, once we see that door, they're open, I get the feeling it's all game. looking at Wynn in the leaders seat, that's the hot seat so far, taking the fastest time of the day, he's our first writer, though I don't know if he'll stick around, let's see if we can see what his time actually is. he is fine with two crashes I doubt he will stay a long time waiting for Mauricio Cunha I thinkthat's how we say his name is from Chile 30 years once again we're here in Valparaíso Chile today this is on the west coast of South America I You know, I made the mistake of staying on the west coast of Chile, but Chile doesn't really it has an east coast so i guess its just the west coast but they are on the west coast of south america we are about 120 kilometers to the north. to the west of Santiago it is the tourist capital of all of Chile tons millions and mill ions of people who live there have about a million inhabitants currently I think the last census said about a million inhabitants, that explains why the streets are so crowded and it seems almost everyone turned out for this event today these streets are packed and this event has been here for 17 years and the success has been getting bigger and bigger as you can see from the crowds at the side of the track there is always a big party in town when this event comes around so it's a fun fact that I was looking for you know doing our research for the show so we sound semi polite can't be too polite but Sam I hated there are some bikers here who they really have won this event before looking at Mart Mauricio hakuna through Chile but that's our next rider the guy in the gate has won this event before Claudio yeah so ue maybe uh idk he's a little nervous there I'm not going out the gate trying to defend trying to win this again there I don't know what he's waiting for there he's there he's out the gate this is his 13th race at this pace not only is he first but he has more than anyone on this course today doing it outside of Chile the local guy stomping on the pedals in that first section this is one of those flat sections where all your stamina and energy will really come into play and running that letter out the gate you know it's going to take some fitness to be able to run to the finish line because there's a couple of straightaways down the road one of them here it is and you can hear the dogs in the background hopefully they're all on a leash and locked up had a couple of issues with it last year but so far not a problem this year through our first stair section looks good so far going down to that super tight section look again right at the bottom of this so far in the first division Claudia we are a little over a second up in win masters well that's going to change unless he crashes there he goes through the only third on the track this turn right after from the track after the 3rd right it will be quite tricky when you hit the street on dirty tires but get back on the pedals here over the bus jump oh a little short on that bus jump how will that affect it on his bottom hand, well, that will probably cost him some speed, but with the bugs that when the master fell further down, that won't be a problem to test him, but obviously Maurizio doesn't just want to beat. when he dominates the time because he won here before and I figured that's what he wants to do again today, he looks like this right now, he's been on the pedals every chance I've seen him so far, even on that stair section , he's pedaling well but he's through the stairs every once in a while it's about pedaling and jumping another jump coming off a hip hop out of this smooth turn no problem and on the pedals again right there that has to be one of my favorite features on the whole course because it looks nice but - it's extremely technical getting out of a shark fin like that in a gap has to be one of the hardest things on this course oh a little slip will hold it thanks lo he does clean across the line which is where the windbenders really fell.
In the last race he fell right there and was in trouble. Have you seen that he almost jumped over the curb? So that must be one of the key sections. Right there you should clear some BMX back in the day because that style of stomping is very BMX s go through the second section you won fell here we go through the dumpster through the flower shop what's the time it will be in the talk fast looking Peter Sagan down there here he comes through the flower show what will be the time that will be a two 5678 smasher that is going to take Maurizio to the number one spot but if I'm not mistaken we are nowhere near winning the qualifying time no we still have about five seconds behind tommix last thomas slovak won the qualifying time but that's still a heater down there did you see when he passed the flower shop how close his handlebars were to that exit which is everywhere in this field yes you can see it right here look at the last few stairs how close was your handlebars to that rail here is that little bobble about the detail on that big bus jump again eight meters long and look there my smo feels like that or it seems that he almost touched it that's scary that's why these gentlemen are doing this and not us because they are the pros of this Ryan Row has another Chilean at the door.
Here we go, the doors open the doors down and we're on our way. The first one we see taking the correct exit, not making a flight that will cost him my second. I'd say it's fine. he's got it under control on the trail bike we'll talk about that in a bit but Ian Rojas is charging hard on the pedals as we head into our first split we're halfway there next pedal hard straight ahead let's see if he's still standing or if he's starting to get involved these events are so unique it's an urban descent format Clara can you tell me a little bit about why these events are so popular?
What makes them what they are? I don't have to travel to the mountains to see the cyclists. In fact, they can stay in their cities. No problem with those free stairs. Did he and Rojas adjust? What was he doing there? What was happening? He was probably locking his suspension so he could pedal harder. the jump wouldn't be very big but maybe without the pedaling they need to do beforehand it's pretty big because they might not have enough leg power to push it hard enough so the jump is so big and it's halfway on the way. Of course, it is also on a very flat section.
As I was looking earlier I found she is on a much flatter section so it really takes some horsepower to get over her but as you mentioned earlier she is actually riding a small bike with just a crown fork as we saw the rider earlier on a full downhill bike and would have expected the little bike to be a lot quicker in the pedaling sections but it's actually losing quite a bit of time but maybe it's catching up well let's see we're about to go through our second division here, he'll be behind by just 0.6 seconds, so he made up a lot of time in that section. stuck in the middle so it comes down to the last bit of travel the last 20 seconds now he's going now he's getting into that speed he puts a little check on the hull past our final section of the ladder getting into the final features get him out of that bin the crowd is going crazy cell phones are off and he's on speed, hit one more show before the flower shop and then it's all about the finish line he'll make it he won't make it on the green , he's second fastest currently with a time of two 5852 Ian Rojas out of Chile looking at our hot seat right now the kids are starting to get comfortable it's going to be a long afternoon but let's take a look back up the hill at what we just did Witnessing on the little little bike here you can see it was not that close to that hand rail definitely on those stairs.
I would like to be on the big bike, but then the rest of the track you know with all those sprints you are definitely better off on the small bike. Less suspension single crown fork otherwise pretty much the same ok so we're talking about different bike setups and that sort of thing let's talk about riders what kind of rider is geared towards this or what kind of rider with this course oh wait we're backed up at the gate this is not about racing action Alberto and Nicolas another chilean up at the gate out of the gate hard charge and on the pedals just a new year and in fact here his best result was nine running pretty good here he is on the big one-oh is he on this smart bike?
Let's see. I have not seen. I think he's actually on a full size bike. We're talking a full eight inches of Double Crown from Inchon. Worry about yourself, as you can see from the results above, it's the four-cross riders that really have two legs to run on and they're doing well here. they are stronger in technical features out there but not as many as in a proper downhill race don't look it was pretty sketchy have you seen how close it was to those rails yeah as well as us you're coming to this race that you're saying tell me it's more the riders I mean crossing, from my point of view it's essentially a sprint out the gate and then a sprint to the end of a very short track in comparison with the downhill races usually being a bit longer track. longer, actually, with a lot more technical features, now it's a combination of both, it's a long track with a lot of jumps and features, but also a lot of Sprint and some downhill riders handle those Sprint better, some don't. t but in cross there is no option you have to handle the sprint torque very well because otherwise you won't be a four cross racer well Alberto is going down we already ran through the first division but coming to the second he is still charging strong in the Pedal down through the final section of the ongoing ladder what's it going to be? it will go to the green approaching here on that end which looked good actually this looks really fun you said it's tricky it will be tricky but it's also a lot of fun what's not so fun is you have to keep pedaling right after we get to our second and last split time going he's down 1.8 seconds yet so now he's 1.8 seconds quicker that's really good on the green and actually what you've seen is he didn't even try to holding on there, only used the curbs as berms, slid on both curbs, which is probably a good strategy if you're going to lose control. runaway and end control versus going the other way exactly in the container section coming out of our final flower drop what's it going to be? the florist says this all looks fresh. two fifty four point nine two that's one point eight seconds faster Wow the times are going down rider after rider when he gets together doing his social media homework right there at the finish line so we've got the big bike in the lead by the time you see where the bike is sticking out being on the stairs is not an issue for him but pedaling was not an issue for him either so he is definitely fit.
Let's see how long that time is for the hot seat. Riders before, my personal favorite is at the gate, next, talking about a Remi Mattel, yes, but right now it's about Alberto Nicholas, the 21-year-old Chilean, sitting in that hot seat right now, looking back in gay dream metalia across france doing it for a 28 year old. You can see this man all over the internet tearing up the trails in Whistler. Right now it's about Valparaíso Chile and you also know him from Red Bull Rampage as the guy who drives it. fastest, let's see if he's fastest today, he's definitely charging there, but sitting now also saves it a little bit to later move on to the technical stuff with his experience and knowledge of him.
I guess he knows that he has a long way to go. and you need to conserve as much as possible here at the top well you know it's just a two minute 50 track so conserving energy on a two minute fifty track I don't know if that's the strategy you need to be able fit enough to push it as hard as possible from top to bottom and that's why they have you doing the expert on my accommodation because you know a little bit more about what's going on in the minds of these riders right now like Remy going down down the ladder he placed himself quite conservative in the last few steps and I can understand that because he's so sketchy there and in that first time split he was up 0.6 seconds so he's the quickest in the first half of the ride so far and he doesn't seem to be lacking of power right there in the pedals like it's out the gate Remy is flying down this course Natalya on course down through that drop wd-40 looks good it's an amazing step with a huge trap we're talking two meters of elevation gain on that course remy i is the 11th fastest qualifier which means after him we have 10 riders to go he doesn't look so fresh anymore now that he's been accelerating at first ip so hard that he's pedaling a little slower, maybe he just went up a gear, but he doesn't.
He no longer looks as fresh as he did in thetop well tell me what it is with these riders the temperature has something to do with it because I know Remy is Whistler based not completely but Remy seems to be very much Whistler based so he is used to cooler temps does the heat does it have something to do with it? But let's take a look at this division of time and see where it isn't. Let's see what's going on in the heading split coming up right now. He's 1.5 seconds faster so it's working for him. you didn't use the strategy of using the kurds as berms there so I don't know if he went through those turns as fast as the other guy we started that we just saw earlier, it will be interesting to watch as we go down towards the bottom. because a bit different style from w what we've been seeing with other riders will go faster that's the question definitely looked faster in this section here than I've seen so far it's good looks comfortable only has 5 seconds left if you want to take a license what will be safe? 53.13 almost knocked out 2 seconds after Albertson Nicholas we're both fighting names at the moment so I'm not as embarrassed as I was before qualifying that would have been the second fastest time of the day that's the second fastest lap fast on the course, okay and you can see there on the last couple of stairs where he was going a little slower just to make sure he stayed straight, but then the rest of the course he was riding the bike downhill too, okay?
So far it's a nod to downhill biking. It seems that they are doing very well. Yeah, it seems, but we still have some fast guys. Let's see which bike they choose. That's very true. We still have 10 cyclists to go here. valparaiso chile looking at the top five curren tly broom italy via france bento Nicolas in the - Mauricio akuno completing the top three these are the top five fastest runners of the day so far - 53 132 53 13 is the fastest time in the time to beat right now to think that those 27 seconds when masters is due to two crashes on track so it wasn't really that slow yeah yeah yeah yeah well we're doing it for Red Bull TV at this time. the temperature is beautiful what we are about to see we are starting to drop those will be called faster riders because they are the fastest qualifiers what we are going to see good you know next up is Gabrielle cha-cha very knee Joannie knee sorry still we are not used to those names because this is not a World Cup, they are different cyclists at the beginning, some of them compete in World Cups, some of them don't, next one here from Brazil, gabion giovannini, 20 years old, yes, Gabriel is coming. off winning the most prestigious pre cross races in south america making it through brazil 27 years young and boy do those legs look like they know it actually its their first time here in valparaiso we have a couple of rookies here today and its amazing see whats it is bringing new talent especially from those south american countries really progressing the culture and the environment this year its not about the dogs its about the kids keeping them on a leash and out of the way just to keep them safe but we are going through a little chicane jumping up those stairs looking fast and charging hard will get some doubles maybe a triple here definitely not scared and holding up well right smooth consensus just as i say smoothing out a bit steady but he keeps going up past the first one he split rolling in a minute in three seconds Wow going deep into that jump almost landing on the flat bottom 18 seconds behind there must have been a problem up there but we're looking to do Of course, I'm going to start looking towards that second half that's going to nag us right now.
We will tell you sitting in the one with a 213 in that second half. We'll go faster falling through the wd-40 drop which is a tough turn they go from the dirt to a supposed firm wooden plank like that that's got to be tough I wonder if the timing of their first split was right if so he must have crashed there and as stated before he goes deep on that jump - that's the second jump i see him land almost flat bottom it's all about speed and he's trying to squeak every last bit sometimes you just have to send him deep and going for it is just going to send it yeah but if you want to keep your momentum you better land early on the back so you can push off and gain more momentum if you land on the flat bottom it will cost you some speed and so also time so the first split was wrong here face up we're down by 0.7 seconds so it's until i recovered a bit at point 7 of a second 0.7 seconds back from really metalli a roll down in the final part of this course and 53 it's time to be it's all about Fitness now those 0.7 seconds are totally doable if you have strong enough legs you have ten seconds left if you want to take advantage of previous races already this year you have a lot of fitness has to be tight what will it be?
Oh slides into second on a 253 just 0.4sec behind Remy, the times are getting really close as we get closer and closer to that 2min 50sec line and I think they'll get pretty close even now in the top 10 Look how he attacked in that last moment afterwards. Stairs I wonder if that little ball on the stairs cost him that point four seconds. No, I wouldn't say because the guy in the front, Remy Mehta, was taking it very, very neat and slow through those last two stairs. just to be sure so i dont think i wasted time there attacking hard ok so clean and consistent is what got remy through there philippe in our gluto another chilean at the gate they are locked and loaded here in chile today our load on the pedals here we go down through the first big feature first section on the course and directly followed by the first big flat pedal section this is where your legs are already on fire that lactic acid build up is rising i'm lifting on this moment and you've been sitting for quite some time which may actually be a sign that you're already tired, but it may also be a sign that you're very smart and saving it for more runs down. drop what's going to be coming up here getting ready to engage that split oh it's slow by 0.5 seconds but looking good calm and consistent rolling down the bottom half of that very smooth stair section there so th middle second means nothing for now and this is a guy who has some experience here he raced here three times or not this is his third time actually he was 10th yeah best best result with Penn's 10th in the Last 10 in this race is something to be said for with the level of competition here in the number of elite riders that show up year after year 10th place is nothing to scoff at scrubbing that very well fell a bit short in the bus hop pretty short actually but its sitting back it looks like maybe its riding a dropper seatpost because it can pedal yeah its a dropper seatpost it just dropped it right there thats a move clever by that you can then pedal while sitting down and then lower your seat when you go back up the stairs, so I'm assuming they should be able to conserve a bit of energy by sitting down and pedaling instead of standing up and using all that muscle exactly. yo are you able to run for two and fifty minutes at full pace or is it better to use that dropper post sitting down while pedaling you could oh and he goes faster by two by more than a second and that's exactly what we're talking about such maybe you know a little bit of energy you can save if you sit while you pedal it's one two what makes you fast towards the end of the track towards the end of the track it's the pointy end that's where the metals come in Down if you could say that all the pedals give a little bit of action coming out of that container and it's still loading the pedals hard a little bit like an arrow tuck it in just to seal it and there you can see how much it looks much more energy and goes goes the fastest bike two and a half seconds and not just the fastest so far is the fastest all day yeah and shows you know that strategy of sitting at the right time and being smart about it race ya be being strategic that's what pays off now let's see if the rest of the guys are ready for that too taking a look at the course here looking at some of these I mean you're essentially pedaling up and down so who obviously has the physical condition to do it. he was actually a point eight faster than slovak and his qualifier within slovaks qualifier actually that means slovak has to go faster not just islam everyone else is fine looking back at starcade lukas of eze doing it for brazil today 23 years young one of the youngest competitors in the field today falling from the gate this is actually his first red bull appearance over basel cetera under so will that affect you today or will you be able to overcome that adversity looking good and moving fast, very clean, smooth lines down. about the first big feature on the course, the first stair section of the Danford circuit or a first section of the race, I have to say Lucas Alves holds everything together and keeps it clean and tidy. d is actually the latin american downhill champion so that's what we have on the track ok what that means is no he's not a new man at this and he's fast as he split the number one bite in half a second, wait six seconds. that's a lot at this point in the course yeah and he was holding him real tight up top you could see him on his feet and running all over the place now let's see if he can keep that up to the end because we know what strategy the current leader has done he was sitting at the top to save some energy towards the bottom I could see him running strong at the bottom now that's a whole different strategy here because he was going full throttle to the top let's see if and keep it fit if you can all good he is the first person i have seen today make the bus jump nice and smooth so something is working for him and he seems to be doing well so far and he is on the downhill bike. riding the small bike keeps getting better and d better is downhill bike vs trail bike the competition is on just keep switching back and forth which one is fastest , Gremio looks faster on the downhill bike then Lukas hit Lukas is on his way right now to try to knock Felipe's time down or go toe here we go through a split what's it going to be he has to beat 12 on the clock oh he's late and he lost something of time.
He almost lost over 2 seconds in that section and that could be it. He may be wrong, but it could be. being exactly that strategy of sprinting too hard at the top not saving energy and maybe just not having enough leg power to run as hard down here because this is a different energy than we've seen before and I see what you're talking about that you don't have a dropper post on your bike, so you can't, you can't straighten your legs and you can't pedal as efficiently now, let's see, no, I don't know nothing very long down here. lost a lot of time in the lower section - in over two and a half seconds back to point seven seven nine back which will leave him in third place currently just behind Graeme Mitali a and Felipe Luthor this is definitely where he was still on pace here through of the stairs and also through that third the only third on the track then he cleared it pretty much cleared it not a hundred percent there was still a couple inches to go but then that's where he started to lose time towards the bottom you were right i was completely wrong and it just kinda hung right a quick look in our hot seat we still have seven riders to run our course here in valparaiso chile looking at it now it will all be about 27 year old bernardo cruz doing it for the best brazil's location here is third place which is pretty high on the board and that's a guy who likes to go sideways on the jumps because he's one of the whips of the world champions yeah he's the good old crank works fest bringing us all the fun action the wood falls out the door and he's charging hard there let's see if he goes sideways today too or if he's just looking speed oh that's absolutely we were talking about be conservative or call it quits but right now he's got that big red line he's bumped it up to 11 right now all the way to the rim pushed a little pass I saw the rear tire go slid but keeping it in check through jessica's yard first section of main stair ongoing this drop shows a little bit of a problem for some riders but going through nice and clean on the longer stairs here keeping it clean oh yeah oh well no problem keeping good momentum through that trick, the stairs eternally go faster by 0.5 seconds so I'm leaving it all out of the bag. in one time he has benefited untilnow, we'll see if it holds up, as the last rider followed suit and slowed towards the back half of the ride. a lot of sprinting There was already and there will be so much from here on out as well so you have a point Oh a five second margin which is not a lot of time on a course like this even on a course only three minute long 250 minutes zero point five not much buffer still got power here looks like he's not struggling with power but still has a minute to go here we go last and last section of stairway going down look at the crowd and what a beautiful view we have for you today crowd just lining the streets like endless people as far as you can see and right now Bernardo wants to give him a show he's going to be a whip on those final jumps what do you think I don't think so he wants to win this race so there's no time to whips, but I think he's either lost a little bit of time in that section or we missed a gate of time regardless of what we're going to figure out at the bottom and he still has the energy. he's still there he's still on those pedals but as you see he can't sit down like we've seen before because he doesn't have to say dropper seatpost with dropper the only thing I noticed is he couldn't sit down and pedal but he was actually still standing and running where I have seen other riders before sitting down and doing a sloppy pedal where standing up at full hard charge will be worth it, no it isn't, loses a bit of time on the bottom, goes in good, if you do I saw ok I was about four seconds back but time didn't stop so the crews are doing is doing four Fazil here taking a look at the course some of the highlights so far she has a little problem there good thing that his suspension was working fine because that could have thrown him out of control but he kept it small little whip right there not a real one and on all the other jumps he probably didn't have the room to put his bike leta sideways looking at our riders right now gentlemen up but we're back on top of the tour with posture Horn strumming Sweden twenty nine years best pla cing so far here it's going to be 14 but he wants to improve as this is his third race in Valparaíso and is looking to land on that podium position. the door opens, the door is closed, and it is in progress. many world cup races welcomed him from sweden but i lived in switzerland for a while training hard all summer looking fast through this section keeping it together and tidy doesn't look like he's coming out of the gate as fast as the others riders than us I've seen before but the fastest rider we've ever seen so far didn't do that or play a look and served it up to the top maybe that's what he's doing here maybe he only has one of those four crossover riders he's got those legs that spin super fast so it's a slightly different style than when you push a gear a little harder but this is where he's good at seeing how straight he keeps his bike that wasn't any problem for him, that was the best and the smoothest. line we've seen s Away today from Bri it looked clean controlled no issues at junction in a way flat bottom up top split we're 2.3sec quicker ok no there we go , can you pull that to the finish line? that was clean no that's all over we finally see it clean and clear at the point three seconds up we've seen that many many times today it will stick only time will tell ok that's going to be something social good media coverage hopefully if they use the red bull cv8 hashtag so we can go and look at all those pictures a little bit later today and they can see how low his seat is and that means for him if he wants to pedal he has to stand and run, he can't sit and pedal, so yeah, there won't be anyone sitting pedaling, it's all stand up and running for him, isn't it?
Yeah I mean you can't rotate your legs while sitting but won won't be a very effective split what will be point one seven back that isn't undoable with a soft look his little foot removed just to counter but looking smooth and in control lost a bit of time so far on this lower course but still heavily loaded on the pedal getting a bit of pump action there. I find the little bikes are faster here definitely not on the stairs but on the bottom half I might be wrong but I guess when we cross the line I'm going to put a pin in that because I want to talk to you more about it but right now it's all about the finish line point for a point six seconds with a nice nose wheelie to finish it will slide you into second place oscar honks from sweden dropping into that second place so talking the differences between the trail bikes and downhill bikes I know you explained that a bit earlier, but why is that such a big advantage?
Well we don't know if it's that big, but on the subject of the pedal II, that bike is just a little bit stiffer it's a little light bt it has less suspension you lose less energy on that suspension and you know that might not matter as much on the first half of the track and it definitely doesn't matter on the stairs where it's the other way around but then when you get to the second half of the track and your legs start to burn you know a little more than you can put on your tires just they make a difference because the bottom half is the part of the course we've seen so far. top riders really win a lot of time seems ok looking at our current results Phillipe out of Guto on the one and only Oscar hallström on the two and we're going to tie and get that top three to fifty fifty five it's the time to beat right now the fastest time of the day in qualifying and the race at 50 55 at the time to beat Claudio oh yeah and a guy who really won't have a problem with all that pedaling is next off the start a delay at the start gate you let me introduce it yes indeed thi s man doesnt need much introduction but he will give it anyway oh man the reins are like a reigning champ fishy has a collection of titles for cross and downhill yonas fishbach will be the man in the gaper right now looking up. in Filippo o Guto sitting in that hot seat back to the top of the track Jonah Johannes Fishbach doing it from Germany getting ready to take his race for the day our number 5 qualifier looking to move just seconds right now one of the top four riders cross in the world then he switched to downhill and he was one of the best or still one of the best they are the best in Germany now on the track now you will see some sprints sorry oh no not at all you have a good relationship with him and I appreciate any feedback on every comment well the door is out he's on course and you're not kidding me he's rough on those pedals i feel bad for those pedals right now they're not having a fun day that chain will take some work k right there when when johann des johannes when pedaling that's no fun on a bike this gentleman has some serious power right now and the skills to back it up rla that's the combination you need today you need endurance power and skills is you really have to have it all to win this race here yeah and johannes is actually on a smaller bike with a crown fork now let's see if that's a problem for him on the stairs here and i don't think it's 1.5 up he's not at all when he comes out of that roof transfer oh little cat out there outside the hostel he looks so fast and so comfortable right now oh yeah and that power is still coming no fight for him let's see if he clears this time correctly yeah that was the best one yet that's for sure he even landed a bit on the rear ya know just make sure you don't cut that edge because you don't want to slow down the wd-40 drop seems already fit for the world cup which sta rts in two and a half months yeah right at the end of april you were telling me well we hope to see you hope to see you him and all the competitors of the Co UCI World Cup, they're on Red Bull TV at the end of April, right? now it's all about Chile, it's all about Valparaíso and it's all about this downhill urban track that you see in front of you.
Johannes Fishbach on a route out of Germany. first foot what he's going to be about to take through the second division is going to be more I'm telling you Oh I'm wrong no it's less we almost got a little problem there yes he lost a little less than a second Abbey 1.4 He lost seconds on that but he's still heavily loaded with the pedals in this pedals section so you're telling me it might be a section for him to stick out yes but it's not in that proper post so you can see as soon as He speaks.
I can't pedal anymore and maybe that's really what makes the difference but we'll see but he's definitely still in power here but he only has five seconds left if he wants to get the leaf out of the florist what will it be? Hold on to your seats second place sliding into second with a 5079 two Felipe Acuto holds one more point for seven seconds and Ohana's Fishbach slides into second. Who would have thought that he was almost certain that he would take that whistle by such a large margin? strategic race we've seen well I want to give you a note I don't know if you know about Philippe or guto last year he slipped into the top ten he was 17 he's only 18 right now and already smart as the super experienced driver to see the guys camaraderie that's what it's all about it's definitely a sport geared towards family and friends showing the love to each other but right now it's all about the flying French alien Adrien lo-roll I know if you want to take a good look at it he's the man to He also knows how to pedal, although pedaling is not very his discipline because he is one of the fastest pump track runners in the world, so that's not where pedaling counts, but look at him, look, yeah. it's not, but you still know what it takes, you also do a bit of slalom and that requires a bit of pedaling, so you know it's hard to get very close to that handrail just by putting it on the red edge and the limiter all the way . max yeah he was a little bit closer to that rail than here than he wants would be 1 2 I'm going to guess that might have cost him just tell me we're getting to first year here we're about to find in just a second how goes H in the Rawls race, what will it be?
Two seconds ago but the last rider we saw with a bit of Plus here was Wave Irish, this race is over for him, again he struggled to find his footing. getting too close to the rails with the handlebars and a The third time the problem was too big, I think that's where he lost the race. He can't reach that speed at that time. meters in the air, that's a long way. I have a full city bus there. I definitely wanted. He definitely wanted to win this one here and I think he was cooking it up a bit.
You could see the same mistake three times in the first half. of the track well we still have the three fastest qualifiers of the day coming The three fastest qualifiers are yet to hit the field right now it's all about getting a little old all coming down through the split to find out it had some issues at the top but he's still going to finish this race do it for the crowd well I'm sure he's still riding as hard as he can he probably doesn't know it look he only lost two seconds so the errors weren't that big.
Don't call it the flying French no re at all it's still hard this is the section where your legs are on fire and screaming please stop don't do this to me but that's where winners are made through the final features out of the container falling through the downtown crowd flags waving cameras everyone is having a good time and jumping to the music right now across the line go 2.6 seconds slower sliding it up the top five still going they slide into the top five placing yes and you know there were two major misses up there and I would say he would have been up there because he looked extremely strong being one of those misses we were talking about a little slip on that section of the ladder there , but he was able to push it every time. on his way to the finish line at top pace, it was actually just those two major mistakes that cost him those two seconds, well we still have the three fastest qualifiers of the day but right now it's all about Filipa or Groot Oh sitting in the number one spot oh that hot seat looks comfortable and classy your honor lopez is doing it out of argentina waiting for that door to open in his career to start but with ammo drop him down the gate, the third fastest qualifier of the day is him. he'll have what it takes to get to the bottom well we'll find out in less than three minutes here we go good I'm definitely not holding back as you can see I was running is that the right strategy has the power to push this all the wayfinish line we'll find out now, could that be the key? it's the rider that has it to race on top and still have something back for the bottom yeah but if you don't have it you need that dropper post or that strategy let's see getting into this now there's one of the key sections, all right through the first split at the bottom of this ladder, set 0.7 seconds back Wow, super fast through that turn at the bottom of the stairs I haven't seen anyone going that fast through that turn now that means something that's not sure he's going down that's the corner we were talking about earlier you go from dirt to tarmac and that's got to be one of the hardest sections of the course to control yes exactly you come to the dirt every writer who writes through it throws a little more dirt onto the road and the turn is actually in the road so it's quite a tricky turn so you're not just fighting traction because, well, you're a bike cleats are not necessarily designed to do it well. but the tires aren't necessarily designed to hold up to what they're doing right now they're putting a lot of g forces into that but then you've got the dirt and it's just sometimes it just overruns it a little too much and like you saw with the men when masters crashes it's already very hard to find your traction on the clean road but then when there's dirt on them it's really a very fine line and they're obviously pushing the wind now so that's ok the line gets even finer eah and so with a race like this it's really like you say find that fine line but push it to the limit and maybe push a little bit more than you should but be able to control it well you know that's what downhill racing is all about, pushing that borderline, such as handling being out of control and losing control.
I sent it back but you know I recently read the saying somewhere and it wasn't even related to mountain biking it just said if you're in control you're not going fast enough. I love that that definitely applies to this race here. Unfortunately Geronimo Pea isn't going to work for him today, but he's still going to finish it off with a little fan seat, that's something I have to say I love about downhill mountain bikers no matter what they're doing it for. the fans yeah I know when I was racing I always said the great thing about downhill racing is even if you don't do it right you still love it you still love it and the crowd loves it too with a 3:17 0.41 going to slide it to face 12 not the run wanted but it still looked good doing it looking back to the top let's see what went wrong looking good in this section holding it together good and then right here is where it all went wrong oh yeah it's still on the third level and then it continues on the paved road his front wheel is slipping both wheels tied up actually ok i guess no onlookers got a bit scared there thats one i guess sometimes you can see the silent bikers save that, but I guess if you hit the rail like that there's not much saving well you know you could probably save it in third place because at some point you can get that traction back but on the road it's gone so Philippe Philippe out loud is guaranteed at least a third place right now. let's see what Pedro has to say about it Pedro is afraid that Riva is on course right now and he wants something to say about it, he wants a lot to say about it and you see a single crown fork which means a complete attack for this type. he's in it for t he wins right now Pedro wants a piece of the second fastest qualifier of the day those two laps we saw there I think this is the fastest I've seen so far now first section of the ladder no fear watch him attacking for commitments smooth keeping good lines - here keeping it completely under control while it's out of control just what you were saying before i pass second set of stairs and it's going to go crazy let's see if it can keep it straight gatz jumps here is where it is done here is where i get soup at point one two Seconds up right now it looks good there that's a huge margin and it's on fire right now Pedro's hairy area looks amazing right now ok no problem for him to come in to the road from the soft dirt through that section, we saw Geronimo slide last night, but it's not a problem for Pedro at the moment.
Oh, keep it low on the bus jump. I don't know if that was the advice or if there were problems. I saw his gears skip before, so I hope he doesn't have a problem. partner swapping missed just a bit maybe we'll find out deep down if that was on purpose or not but we're going to find out very quickly here if it was a good thing or not and that's what matters and what all boils up to will win the watch oh he took a sip of that Chum sending he's so deep in that jump ok he's not far to go to the second split does he have the stamina to keep it up can he still provide the power it takes to take this first place just a few more seconds and we'll know where he is in the division he needs to be 12 to be up and he's still over a second over Philly putter Goethe ok it's all about fitness now let's see if he has that juice in your legs all over the finish getting to the pointy end of this race just a few seconds left speed poking in opting not to pedal yes but you're not allowed to sit much longer if you want to take that win here we go this is what it's all about low ar through the container the first hard-charging pedal section out of the flower shop three seconds to go to what's going to be and he's cycling faster almost half a second for up to five zero hey jeff federer ok chile sitting at number one Felipe our Guto finally knocked down to that second place and so the dropper post was also hit on a small bike so we've got two small bikes up there looking at her keeping everything neat and tidy to get through this section that gave her to Geronimo a nice smooth little problem no problem Pedro he looks fast and stays crouched now I have a wonderful facility it's faster to scrub that bus jump that's a very good question because obviously as we saw before, all the other riders who wanted to clear that bus jump had to. go pretty high wasting a lot of time in the air so maybe that's why you opted to stay low and not clear all the jump obviously you didn't get that much rear end either but that might be the solution but now did you save enough weather? to counter good it comes down to Thomas hitting the girl on the door now that the door has fallen he's on his way this is the last man to do it here he's the one who can deny Pedro Farina the keys to the victory.
Thomas slapping 2017- 2018 can get to 2019 and you know if one of the guys here knows how to keep the jump slow then it's this guy Thomas Slavik he loses I'm going to check on Thomas Slovak and make sure he's okay but pho Federer. up on stage he knows he's taken the win let's hope we hope Thomas is okay in there yeah we're going to get the guys down to check on him make sure he's okay after taking that big hit now that's all. about Pedro finita the chilean taking the number one spot on stage the crowd is going crazy right now the local guy ok let's throw him back on top and see what happened there audio hmm ok just i attacked a little too hard and that right hander and probably some dirt in there and we were talking about it the whole race that grip is so hard to judge and obviously his front wheel slipped at a very very bad time .
I hope he's okay there because that hit was hard. at this moment it is that man in front of your page a photo reader does it for Chile taking him home listen to the crowd that are going crazy there it is just a party and having a good time the energy and emotion in this man right now drinking Una look back Let's look back at Pedro Claudio's career help me through this What did he do right? When did he get it right? He looks like he did it right from top to bottom. He didn't hold back.
He did not execute that strategy. from saving energy at the top, he pedaled as hard as he could and was able to push it all the way and there was a little difference in the bus jump, he was the only one not trying to clear it, he was the only one keeping it down. landing on the bus they're doing another little jump to then i took the back and it seemed like that was the strategy because jumping the whole bus was spending too much time in the air yeah i mean it took it for more than half a second like this which is what i mean it could easily be that extra half second out of six trying to navigate over that bus jumping so high but it also looks so smooth in all of these sections yeah there wasn't much of a bug that we could see and obviously there wasn't either problem for him going from that third on the road and back on the throttle to the right they're not sitting they're just running he's obviously fit and you can see there he didn't know it almost got him in trouble though trying to land on top of the bus almost makes it. he bucked on the handlebars.
I saw that he looked like he wanted to kick him forward, but he kept it firm and smooth and under control yet capable. This is where that resistance comes into play, as he's still able to really put that power out. the bottom half of his course he re a couple of times during his career he was putting his hand on the helmet but that was a twisted moment right there where it sent him to bottom and bottom flat and he bounced but three times in his career , he was putting his hand on the helmet and grabbing it i don't know what was all that talking to his trainer or something just readjusting that helmet to make sure he can see everything he needs to, a lot of stuff running through the streets you want to make sure that stay away from all of that as we get closer to the end of this race yes we are reproducing Ferreira's winners race page out of Chile but it's the last little section of the course and he's still producing so much power . for a couple of seconds and then he did another sprint so that's what you have to do on this one so looking back I'm serious I really didn't I didn't think about it before but this guy has been winning so much this year that taxco already won he won a madea medine I mean it's a I've already been on a streak all year, yes, so he must be the new king of the downhill city, let's summarize it in an interview with Pedro Ferreira, Let's see what he has to say about that winning streak right now, well I hope you can read lips a bit. there because I think we have some technical problem.
I can't hear it, but those could be my ears. Can you hear it? Yes, Pedro is so excited right now. I'd still like to know, so it's an amazing feeling for him. I am already the winner in Mexico and Colombia, but the victory is so close to home that there is a completely different feeling. him and when he was riding all the way down if college keep giving it their all and there was a good flow and yeah so ah thanks to chili the renewal of a whole career sensu bono the world you show me so much good Ringo when he will and he moong dal in the lubrano siggy phillipe thank you very much great good food like all cream so i am very happy and grateful to the pope people so that is your message i think because we have this race here , it's really up to the crew to have it as the winner. sadly from taking him home just found out we are tending to thomas slovak and looking over to make sure he is ok we will have updates with you when they get to us how late we had here claudio the race this afternoon was absolutely red line packed became 11 from start to finish quite a bit of action towards the end not the action we were hoping for but i'm sure the crowd will love a local winner oh i mean he already won in mexico and colombia this year so what does that take Just like I was saying to bring this win so close to home, anyone who has to be amazing from a running back point of view, what does it feel like? well you know winning is always good but winning at home is even better but you know with him he wins so many races in a row now his confidence should go up and up and up his confidence is going up and right now he seems like the man to be in the urban world of downhill well we are wrapping things up here in valparaiso chile looking for our crowd i want to thank you for coming out and supporting us and for all of you here at red bull tv watching the action seeing what we have live so speaking of red pool live I mean we have so many great upcoming events Crankworx is going to be in Rotorua very soon in just a couple of weeks and then you have a couple of things going on with the UCI going downhill yeah obviously the Mountain Bike World Cup UCI will start towards the end of April there we have to focus on his race again even though Fishbach up the hill let's see what it took for him to slide into third which means actually we have thetop three on the small single-crown bike, that shows clearly. which on this track at least maybe not generally in urban downhill racing but on this track the small bikes are faster and Felipe is good so the young end of the pack is good enough for second today , he is only 18 years old and he drives extremely smart with his own dropper strategy. seat post being able to pedal sitting down and that put him in second place was hard to beat for others so hard to beat so hard to beat only one man could do it and that man is none other than a true gentleman Here a jumper Laughed with the race of the day fastest time of the day he beat everyone else's qualifying time on the course and kept his run from top to bottom buttery smooth and looking fast all day to the finish line with that 250 almost zero point planes. eight four but we'll call it flat 54 well thanks for sticking with us here at Red Bull TV all day to source for Red Bull valparaiso looking up our final results leaderboard Benton Pedro Philippe Johannes Oscar Remy Ma Tei rounding up or But the top five German and Swedish chili chili, closely followed by the French, is a mix of an international field here in Valparaíso and we are happy to have it, we look forward to many years to come, but for this 17th edition of Red Bull valparaíso cero Abajo Claudio, I want to thank you so much for coming and hanging out with me today and giving me all of your amazing perspective and knowledge.
