Video: racer vs courier

Dailies -



Who’s faster in traffic, a professional motorcycle racer or one of Sao Paulo’s notorious Motoboys? In town for Red Bull X-Fighters, FMX star Robbie Maddison took the opportunity to find out. Robbie’s jumped Tower Bridge, gorges and mastadons, but this is probably one of the most dangerous days he’s ever spent on a motorcycle.

    Awesome video! Seems like the kind of thing a global HFL would cover. Still wish it were more of an actual race, though…

    Very cool, but I have to say that it doesn’t look much different than my standard southern California rush hour commute. Although it seems like Sao Paulo is free of D-bags driving jacked up mud tire shod F-350s that cannot fit in just one lane haha.

    Haha, kinda like those Fast Bikes vids where they just have scooters racing through traffic and doing skids & stuff.

    But dang – 2 of them die every day!

    An old friend who lives in Sao Paolo who I linked this to lives on the 22nd floor of the bracket shaped building on the right of the picture above. He says those motoboys drop like flies in that Brazilian street traffic.
