The GoPro video we featured two days ago of snowboarder Xavier de la Rue rappelling a rocky cliff and then snowboarding down the mountain is nothing compared to this one we’re featuring today. Watch in the first person POV as this extreme mountain biker barrels down what could possibly be the most insane mountain bike path in the world!

The track is a rocky path on a narrow ridge near Zion National Park in Utah; the biker, Geoff Gulevich. This breathtaking, toe-tingling, and adrenaline-pumping video was taken during the 2013 Red Bull Rampage, an annual freeride mountain biking competition that’s become one of the biggest in the world. And it had just gone viral, near miss slips and all.

Most of us have been on bikes since we were kids but I doubt any of us will be braving this track anytime soon. So it’s nice to get a little taste of the excitement in the comfort of our own living rooms. While we’re at it, let’s up the ante a little and watch an even crazier one of Kelly McGarry on the same track, at the same event, backflip over a 72-feet canyon included.

Watch the two extreme GoPro videos after the jump!
