The Red Bull Valparaíso Cerro Abajo urban DH race returns in 2024 celebrating 20 years of riders taking on Valparaiso's tight and technical streets. After some nail-biting runs, the results are in from Chile.

Lucas Borba kept a consistent speed across the treacherous steps and loose street corners to take the win. Lucas Borba faced tough competition, but a consistent run kept him ahead of the field as he secured the win at round one of Red Bull's Urban DH race series.

Felipe Agurto was on the hot seat for a long time before being beaten as he was strong in the bottom half of the course, where he was fastest in split three. While Felipe gained time on the race winner at the bottom of the course, he would end the day 0.181 back. Adrien Loron had a great ride to take third place, 1.791 seconds off the winning pace.

It was a tough race for Camilo Sanchez and Tomas Slavik who both suffered mechanicals during their race runs. Johannes Fischbach had a massive crash during his race run and had to be taken off the course by the medical team. We wish Johannes all the best and will provide an update on his condition once we know more. Sebastian Holguín also crashed during his race run after setting rapid times at the top of the course. Thankfully Sebastian was still able to complete his race run.

Check out the full results and a breakdown of the splits below.

 You can really see how hard red bull is going for the throat of the UCI. Maximizing their own network of races, as like a test series. With unreal coverage (live stream FPV drones?), superior commentators, significant media outreach. With the DH races they sponsor, the hardlines, the Urbans, they’re in more countries, more around the world than the World Cup is.

 Yoann dislocated a toe but managed to put it back in place and went back up for his quali. Unfortunately he lost it on a corner and ended up going down. He still had a blast and already looking forward to the next round in Guanajuato March 23rd Smile )
