Add urban downhill mountain biking to the list of sports we'd avoid.

In this video posted by Red Bull, an unidentified mountain bike rider barrels down narrow stairs and streets in Valparaiso, Chile, taking viewers along for the white-knuckle ride.

The run was part of a recent competition called Red Bull Valparaiso Cerro Abajo. The clip's description reads:

Once again, the hills of Valparaiso tested the gnarliest urban DH mountain bikers with an insanely technical DH course through Chilean streets. Take a point-of-view look at what it's like to charge through one of the sketchiest urban MTB courses in the world.

Filip Polc won the competition for the third straight time, WeLoveCycling.com reports. "The course is crazy, you know," he told an interviewer.

In our book, winning is just finishing in one piece.
