Extreme bike sports in heart of Quebec City

Dirt.jpgIt's a first in North America and it's happening right here in downtown Quebec City. An enormous pile of dirt has been dumped onto Place d'Youville and fashioned into a track for a sport that crosses mountain biking with BMX style riding.

The event is called Cite8, and it is part of the Vélirium World Cup Moutain Biking competition this weekend in Mont-Ste-Anne. Many events are happening at the mountain, but, right here, in dowtown Quebec City, world renowned athletes will be competing for the title of the best freestyle moutain bike rider.

The CBC's Allison Van Rassel walked over to Place d'Youville yesterday to meet some tof the athletes as well as the creator of this unique course, Jeremy Witek.
