Mountain bike races as commentary on urban infrastructure?
I don't think the organizers of this meant for this to be commentary, but what does it say about the design/organization of your urban infrastructure when professional athletes are using it as a venue for mountain bike racing? A corollary: if professional athletes find your "walk to school/work" this challenging, what does that mean for normal people who are just trying to get themselves or their goods/services to market?
[I hope my cynicism doesn't ruin these videos for you, since they are amazing athletic/artistic feats. Thanks to Mina for sending these.]
