Tomáš Slavík was crowned champion of Red Bull Monserrate Cerro Abajo in Bogotá, Colombia, billed as the longest downhill race in the world. The Czech rider’s time of 4m 42s proved untouchable, even before torrential rain made it impossible for riders to challenge effectively later in the race.
Speaking after his win, Slavík commented: ”All the guys who made it to the bottom are real heroes and true champions. [The track] is one tough cookie. It’s not about one good line, it’s about saving energy and keeping the flow because the run is so hard.”
