MTB vs paraglider – who’s fastest down a mountain?

A race from top to bottom

What’s the fastest way down a mountain? We’d normally automatically say on a bike of course, but this video may show otherwise.

We”re used to seeing paragliders serenely floating above the hills but it turns out they can get some speed up if they put their mind to it.

The race took place at the Queenstown Skyline bike park and, despite putting the hammer down, the bike lads got a pretty thorough drubbing. They should have got Markus Stockl involved to make it a fairer race!
