Video: Mountain bikers drop through sinkhole in Mexico


Here’s a freeride video that is a bit different from the normal DH run or bike park whip-off. Aaron Chase and friends found a sinkhole in Mexico. So what do they decide to to? Drop straight through it, of course!

Sinkhole Drop - Aaron Chase

While on a trip in Mexico searching for jungle trails to ride, Chase discovered this huge hole that leads into some underground caverns. Chase gets by with a little help from his friends, like Eric Porter and Chris Van Dine who helps him take down some trees to clear a run-up and also build a tranny to help with the landing.

Does he clean it? Watch and find out! “Like doing a drop with your eyes closed!”

This video is part of the Red Bull series titled “Through My Eyes”. For more Red Bull stoke, check out:
