Join this daredevil as he descends 6,500 feet down a mountain

Downhill bike racer Marcelo Gutierrez slapped a camera onto his helmet and filmed his more than 6,500 foot descent down the Montserrate mountain during the 2012 Red Bull Devotos de Monserrate in Bogata, Columbia, enabling you to feel the exhilaration of riding over a bunch of stairs mere feet from a sheer 1,000 foot drop with nothing but a meager stone wall between you and a fatal fall.

Either this guy is very confident in his own bike maintenance abilities, or he completely trusts his bike mechanic.
