Downhill biker tackles the streets of Quebec at full speed; video

Downhill biker Finn Iles may only be 17, but he knows the value of historic places. Like Quebec for instance, Canada’s oldest city.

In a new edit from Red Bull, Iles tackles the narrow streets and concrete structures of the old city in an aggressive display of urban downhill riding.

Filming as early as 5 a.m. to obtain empty streets, the recent high school graduate Iles told Red Bull, "When I'm on my bike, I don't really think about anything else but riding. You're just in the moment. It's an awesome feeling to be able to do what you love."

Quebec is certainly a city worth exploring, and while the way Iles did so may not be for everyone, it’s certainly one of the fastest ways to see the historic city.
