I've seen this before, and it makes me cringe each time I see it.

Note the rider appears to be wearing a pinstripe business suit.

Absolutely insane! I would too concerned about my safety (aka: Scared) to even stand in the crowd to watch.

Mad! I'm sure I've seen a similar video from South America where they actually ride through someone's house.

Just found it:

The next time I'm in Chile I'm signing up for that. I suspect that will be in 20Never

I wonder what kind of chain oil they use.

I've seen that and other videos of that kind of events. That video is the best. I particularly like the moment with the dog. The rider is crazy. :D

Perro Loco!

So where are the fail videos of these events? I want to see those!

Watch this one until the very end. The last sentence is priceless. :D The semi-enthusiastic announcers need to overdub on the Chile DH video.

Insane indeed, those South and Central American FreeRide downhill competitions are freaky awesome!

I like his purple handlebar.

The answer to your question -- very, very close to if not! It's clearly for those for whom crashes, injuries and safety aren't considerations.
