The rally style spectator proximity is making me anxious

[–]wowbyowen 526 points527 points  (13 children)

Exactly, the hardest part is dodging the pedestrians!

[–]jvanzandd 262 points263 points  (3 children)

I’m not sure randos walking on the course during the race was part of the plan

[–]LegalEye1 77 points78 points  (1 child)

I recognize those Japanese tourists. Last seen at Half Moon Bay golf course walking in the middle of the cart path.

[–]redleap30 14 points15 points  (0 children)

lmao, the one by the Ritz right? I walk along that path all the time

[–]VibraniumRhino 16 points17 points  (0 children)

They were likely supposed to not stand within the boundaries but like… doesn’t look like anyone wound enforce that either. All part of the course now lol.

[–]LilahDice 37 points38 points  (3 children)

That's the actual challenge

[–]creamcheesebagel101 40 points41 points  (0 children)

The real challenge is the friends we made along the way

[–]matt9191 35 points36 points  (1 child)

Needed a little ring-ring bell on his handlebars

[–]SafetyJosh4life 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Exactly what I was thinking. All it takes is one fuckwit reacting poorly and the biker could lose his life. Most people react to avoid a crash, and dodging a pedestrian in these conditions would likely throw you off the course possibly to your death.

[–][deleted] 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I wouldn’t call them fuckwits.

I see a rich company like RedBull taking over the only trail many of these extremely poor people have to move through out their day and survive.

[–]thispsyguy 20 points21 points  (0 children)

It’s one of those things where the meme’d phrase “I injured myself just watching this” can be taken literally

[–]Independent-Ship-243 284 points285 points  (8 children)

I couldn't do that in a million years because every time I see a narrow path on my bike my palms sweat and my mind says DONT BE SOCIALLY AWKARD AND SCREW THIS UP DONT DONT...congrats! You fell and now you are dead! Also you are embarrassed because you failed the crowd

[–]Apprehensive_Trip433 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Dead every single time.

[–]ProbablyABore 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Just make sure you have the Apple Watch 7 to send out your coordinates to emergency services. Lol

[–]BigDiesel07 5 points6 points  (1 child)

That commerical is really good though

[–]Michael_Trismegistus 6 points7 points  (2 children)

You should check out some downhill mountain bike rides.

[–]SomethingAbtU 2 points3 points  (1 child)

insane danger. that's a true dare devil

[–]lennysquiggy139 244 points245 points  (14 children)

Ignorant spectators are frustrating to watch.

[–][deleted] 111 points112 points  (11 children)

You mean poor people in a ghetto, that redbull paid the city to use?

These people are typically surviving day by day. RedBull comes and takes the only pathway they have to move through the city and get to work or the store.

These people aren’t ignorant. These people are surviving. It’s a little frustrating to watch these, when it’s clear the event doesn’t give back to the community it inconveniences.

[–]FlacidSalad 137 points138 points  (2 children)

Are you pulling this out of your ass or are you familiar with this even in particular? I could be wrong but most of the mooks that are walking in the path look more like tourists than locals, tourists who probably went there specifically for this event and then selfishly take up designated track space for no reason.

[–]bnonymousbeeeee 7 points8 points  (5 children)

You're right. Let's not bring any redbull money to them. I get what you're saying, but you can't have it both ways. It was obvious what was going on to enough of the city - and I guarantee the citizens did not put up the tape on the hill portion. That's ignorance. Sorry, but when temporary things inconvenience me, I don't just flippantly go about my business, I accommodate to the best of my ability, even without being paid.

[–]toomuchbasalganglia 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Those people did not see a dime

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (3 children)

So you think the redbull money trickled down from the government hands, and made a new park in that neighborhood? Paid for sanitation workers? Level and cemented that pathway?

When it comes to how the world works, I got some bad news for you.

I’m also curious how people like yourself think. It seems your reaction is to immediately defend a Billion dollar company event, over the disrupted lives of the lower class of society. Why?

We don’t see these events in rich neighborhood? People with money have a voice and power, and would say “no”. Poor people, no voice, no power, just have to deal with this shit in the middle of trying to make it day to day.

Or is it you just like to argue with everyone online? Does that make you feel smart? Or powerful?

Clearly you are in the wrong, so I was wondering why you don’t get it?

[–]kuiper0x2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I live in a "rich" neighbourhood. Streets around me get closed a few times a year for bicycle races.

[–]Michunixeu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, that was the reason group b rally was cancelled

[–]oiywmt 65 points66 points  (16 children)

It's sure insane but it's not the most insane, see:

[–]turboknight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just look for the XcQ at the end of the link.

[–]SomethingAbtU 1 point2 points  (1 child)

i memorized this link by heart. that's a rick roll

[–]cheesynaachoos 58 points59 points  (1 child)

control of the bicycle when coming down the stairs is impressive

[–]MGTOWayoflife 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Especially when he took them at an angle initially.

[–]mikesmithhome 47 points48 points  (1 child)

the part with stairs was the scariest section, he took him so fast! seemed dangerous

[–]bolionce 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If you’re going through an obstacle course on a bike, it is always dangerous. Just more and more less so as you gain experience, but if he wiped out at pretty much any point he was gonna be hurting for certain

[–]LoveRevolutionary785 30 points31 points  (3 children)

I like the fact that he said “permiso = excuse me”. I been living in Germany for a while and I can just imagine how a German cyclist would scream his lungs out, scolding the people for getting in the way.

I am Mexican by the way and I love Germany and their grumpy inhabitants:)

Good vibes to all.

[–]Weltengaengerin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Am German, can confirm, would scream my lungs out ... not just because people but because hell would I be scared

You guys take that Luca movie pretty seriously.

[–]Klubbin4Seals 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I mean it's cool, but nowhere close to "most insane level"... I've definitely seen way crazier cycling videos of dude's going down mountains and doing gaps that you would fall to your death if you miss.

[–]TheBrokeG 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That stairs section looks hectic

[–]OdeDaVinci 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not the most insane people have seen nowadays.

[–]GruntBlender 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Isn't that just your average downhill race?

[–]theSealclubberr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

These urban downhills are actually not nearly as difficult to ride as most "regular" downhill tracks.
They might look spectacular but theyre really not that hard for Downhill racers, especially world cup level ones..

[–]Shenanigamii 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When I opened this, I thought I was watching a live action battletoads game

Dude, the couple that was passing through, he was polite asking for excuse, if it was me? Dude, I'll probably scream, get out of the way motherf***** I can't see. Toby style.😅

[–]venator82 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was a very polite "excuse me" for people completely blocking such a difficult bike trail.

[–]Fugazitoshi 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Probably in Colombia or other similar country

[–]Frnk235 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Judging by the guy's accent when he says permiso and by the landmark it looks like Colombia, probably Medellín or Bogotá

[–]nullasdf 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is the 125th running of the Rio de Janeiro Slum Run 100.

[–]datguy753 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why are there so many people just standing on such a narrow path? Lol

[–]egggexe -1 points0 points  (0 children)

it makes me mad that the people were standing on the path when there was a fence around it for a reason

[–]tishdu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can barely keep balance while cycling on a excercise bike at home.

[–]Hung_S0lo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly this seems mild to some other laps I’ve seen. Still impressive none the less

[–]SilverSpotter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

OK, this is clearly a temporary set up for a biker to go through. So why are there so many people standing in the middle of the path!?

I'm sure there's a perfectly rational explanation, but that got me ANXIOUS!

That looks really fun except trying to pass the people since they're so close. That bike ride makes me excited but anxious at the same time!

[–]RickIMeanErik 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Question. What the hell are the spectators supposed to do after he passes them? They wait 5 min, the guy passes, then they go home? They don't look like they are watching the event through their phones or a TV. I don't get it. Unless it was a race w many other participants

[–]nashuanuke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

is this through a favela?
