Watch as four extreme athletes take on the world’s steepest street in all manner of conditions  

What happens when you take the world’s steepest public street, cover it with four different terrains and tell four of the world’s best athletes in their discipline to get down there in the only way they know possible? Breath-taking stunts and action is the answer. 

Watch as freeski expert Bene Mayr, snowboarder Heikki Sorsa, and downhill mountain biker Aaron Gwin challenge the street from above, while racing driver Mattias Ekström battles the elements to get them to the top in the Audi A4 quattro.
