    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:

    For those who want to watch it embedded here:

    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.

    Watch this one until the very end. The last sentence is priceless. 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.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    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.
