If you feel like throwing up after watching the video below, you better not get into downhill mountain biking. But if you find it interesting also, we recommend not trying it if you don’t have much practice and/or if you are using a second-hand bike you bought for $100. The GoPro 60fps clip shows a ride during the final race of the Beech Mountain Resort Downhill Series from the perspective of Phil Kmetz.
The video shows how difficult the downhill trip can be. If a rider loses concentration he or she can end up hitting a tree. And there are rocks and humps on the track that will make sure the ride is very tough without experience and a good bike.
There’s a nice jump at 1:52.
