A Bumpy Ride Down Monserrate

In Columbia’s capital city of Bogota, Monserrate hovers 10,341 feet over it.  About 1,500 rocky steps make up the path to the summit where Cerro de Monserrate resides.  Many locals make the pilgrimage to this church for worship as well as to enjoy the view of Bogota.

Red Bull decided this was an ideal spot to have a downhill mountain bike race.  Here’s a head cam video of Columbian mountain biker, Marcelo Gutierrez (2nd place winner), riding the course that descends 6,561 feet in under 5 minutes.  His crazy hairpin turns will get your heart pumping, indeed.
