Downhill racers swap chalets and cow bells for chandeliers at Red Bull Ride The Palace 2012

We’ve had urban downhill, car park racing and now this, a race through Bulgaria’s National Palace of Culture. Whatever happened to riding mountain bikes on mountains?! Filip Polc took the win at the first Red Bull Ride The Palace, beating World Cup star Matti Lehikoinen and some rapid locals. Check out the videos below and then turn the page to view a great photo gallery from the event.
