Tomáš Slavík - back to back win at Red Bull Valparaiso Cerro Abajo 2018

No one will be offended if we call Red Bull Valparaiso Cerro Abajo the biggest and most prestigious urban DH race in the world. A title there is on the wishlist of many DH, enduro, fourcross and urban lovers all over the world. Tomas Slavik, after taking a big win last year, kept his unbeaten streak to make it a back to back win in 2018.

After an absolutely insane run Slavik really made it happen, his first ever back to back win in Valparaiso!! Tomas Slavik, the 30-year-old rider from the Czech Republic is now written deep in #rbvca’s 16-year-old history!

 

“It’s always been a dream of mine to take a back to back win at Valparaiso. As I saw this year’s start list full of World Cup DH riders, EWS riders and especially previous winners of #rbvca, I knew it would be harder than ever. At the same time, I knew that races in the city got really specific in the last few years, and the pace we were pushing in the recent races just got into a whole new level of riding. As I saw the final times of riders going in front of me, I knew that I would have to dig deep and leave everything I got on the track. It’s very hard to go almost over your own limit and stay super precise at the same time, because the consequences of making a mistake are huge. I’ m so happy that everything worked out for me and I was able to take the back to back win. This place, this crowd and this event in general is hard to describe without being here and seeing it on your own – it’s an absolute energy boost, where riders are feeling like rock stars. I’m so proud of the organizers and the mountain bike community in Chile, because this event should be a role model for all other events in the world. Thank you guys and thank you Chile - I will be back… “
