You might say that some of the photos fall in the “why women live longer” meme category. When you watch the helmet GoPro footage from any year of this “bike parkour” event you can’t but wonder how could anybody came up with the course. We wouldn’t even think of walking through some of the segments, let alone ride a bike there.
This year’s winner is a Czech Tomáš Slavík, who beat the competition at 2:48,480, managing to put more than 2 seconds between him and Bernard Kerr (GBR) who was second. It was the fourth time Slavík attended Valparaíso. “Cerro Abajo was always the highest goal to achieve for me but my coveted victory kept slipping out of my hands just by the seconds. I simply almost stopped believing that it was possible for me. This year I had a great time riding, after all the years I knew what to expect of the course and I was ready to put everything into my final ride” said Slavík to We Love Cycling. The warm and enthusiastic atmosphere of the whole event is world-famous and now you have the chance to experience it through our colourful gallery by Jan Kasl.
