A dizzying look at the Valparaiso Cerro Abajo bike race

April 5, 2011 |  6:03 pm

The video above is from this year's Valparaiso Cerro Abajo, an urban bike race held annually on the streets of Valparaiso, Chile.

Race winner Filip Polc, from Slovakia, is seen navigating the crazy course during his qualifying run, braving jumps and flights of stairs and avoiding myriad obstacles, including an almost-unlucky dog.

Polc's helmet-cam really provides a unique and dizzying perspective of what has to be one of the craziest urban downhill races around.
