Nothing to read here, folks. It's spring time, which means time to tune up the mountain bike and get ready for race season. If this video doesn't get you amped for some single track riding, nothing will. Here is insanity defined: A Chilean city, a downhill bike, a helmet cam and a dog.

Notice how he laughs when he hits some of those drops. Or how he continues to pedal on the flats.

Even though it's way out of my league, it's darn inspiring. If someone gets arrested in the next 24 hours for cruising down the steps of the U.S. Capitol, know that I'm follower, not a leader.
