Mick has been a regular feature at Valparaiso over the last few seasons and after qualifying 3rd, Mick looked towards his race run with high motivation but a crazy crash, unfortunately, ended his hopes of victory.

  • + 7

 Looks like he was stairing right at the wall when he crached!
  • + 3
 I think he did a rather descent job tackling those stairs, myself.

 Is the video choppy as hell for anyone else too?
  • + 1
 Yeah, the video is choppy as hell, I really don´t know what camera is he using, seems awful :/
  • + 18
 May have something to do with the amount of huck to flats and stair sets perhaps?
  • + 10
 No, its just called riding fast through some sketchy bullshit!
  • + 21

 I love this guy. I hope Mick will be back to his old self and can show his full potential. He's such a nice and humble guy. If you have a chance to talk to him, do that. You'll most likely walk away feeling better than before.

 I can only second that. I met him last year in Whistler at Crankworks.
  • + 5
 Same here, met him once in Leogang after the race and he was so humble and made me feel more important than himself. All in all great guy.

 With all due respect. Please STOP the Mexican Crap Typical Music for every Latin American video out there. We are not MEXICO. We are thousand miles away. We have our own typical music. Stop embarrasing yourselves. Do some god damm research before editing a video. You don´t hear music from England or Ireland when you see a documentary about the US do you? Or how would you feel if you saw a video about Scotland and the music was Typical from New Orleans. Please Stop the Ignorance. Mexico is Mexico, Chile is Chile and Argentina is Argentina. The same as US is US, Australia is Australia and Ireland is Ireland. You all speak English but have your own culture. Thank you very much.

 Damn lucky.

 I cant get over how they carry so much speed, on stuff that is so damn narrow. How close are his hands to those stair rails when he's fully-compressed from doubling? and the gaps through the gates?!? O_o
  • + 2
 Yeah man that made me cringe!
  • + 9
 WTF. I got lost like 6 times and I wasn't even riding it...
  • + 8
 Gapping those stairs for the extra transition energy in those tight quarters is pure beast.
  • + 4
 He's so fast. It would be interesting to watch the speed of the bike on the vid.
  • + 5
 Downhill Domination, just in real life and without bottles!

 id rather start at rampage than these nasty city dh races. so is he hurt badly? hopefully, he is not suffering anything that would influence his preperation for dh wc.
  • + 10
 Hey @todesengel - just spoke to one of his team and surprisingly (and thankfully) he's all good and not too badly hurt after that!
  • + 2
 thanks for replying. really glad to hear that.
  • + 5
 Unbelievable. Those stairs!!

 Way way to much pedalling for my liking
  • + 2
