Rowan Sorrell wins the Red Bull Downforce

December 07 2011

Last Sunday saw the Red Bull banners strung up in Swansea for the Downforce urban race. Riders ducked and dived between railings, over steps and through the concrete jungle that is the second most populous city in Wales. Riders got two shots at qualification with the eight quickest going through to the final showdown. 

Liam Murphy was on hand to shoot the action, check out his take on it all from the Skyline Cycles Vimeo page:
