Funchal Downtown on its 3rd Edition. Missed the first two but as this time it was near my place, decided to go.
Didn't regret it, a great afternoon of action!

A part of the track: from those trees up there is mainly stairs with a jump on the “Brisa” bottle.
By the way, Brisa is a local drink (gas juice with several flavours)

The final jump.

Some paragliders were enjoying the view from a diferent angle…

This was a curve made right after one big jump…

Another paraglider with the sponser of the comitee for the celebrations of city's 500 Years, which also sponsored this race.

Another kind of biker, not so radical….yet…LOL

This was a british (I think) trial expert that was opening the race and making some nice tricks between races.

Looks at his eyes…quite focused.

The Bike Police Brigade. Something that apeared this year.

Nice jumps and not many falls (only seen one)

Another part of the track where the support area was. In first plan, CCC (Cais do Carvão Café) and on background, the new Pestana Promenade Hotel that's still under construction.

Another trick from the #0

An overview for the western part of the city.
The final for the race was downthere in the shadow area, unfortunatelly, the sun had already gone on that area, when the last racers (first places) finished.
