Racing in his hometown of Manizales, Colombia is always a big motivation for mountain bike Downhill World Cup rider Marcelo Gutierrez. This year the course builders put together one of the most demanding tracks the race has ever seen and Marcelo really put on a show for his crowd. With very aggressive lines around the track he managed to grab the victory with a few seconds to spare. What do you think about the course? Does it stack up to Taxco, Lyttelton, and Bratislava? Let us know in the comments.

    Pardon my ignorance but is this a timed event?

    I’m guessing it is but then you would think the fastest rider would skip pretty much all the wall rides/ramps for max speed.

      I was thinking the same thing…

    I think in these urban downhill events some of the ramps are mandatory. At least that has been my understanding. Hense why he skipped some and went over others.

      Yeah, I thought that might be the case. Or maybe you have to hit a certain # but you get to choose which ones?
