Pro Downhill MTB Rider from Manizales, Colombia / Sponsored by: Giant Off Road Factory Team, RedBull, Universidad de Manizales, TLG, Herragro, Moveo Marcelo Gutiérrez Villegas first rode a bike aged three, a BMX, and by six years of age he was taking part in BMX races. During his childhood, he mixed BMX and cross-country MTB, until at around 10 years old he tried Downhill. By the age of 14, he'd stopped racing BMX and focused on DH, where he'd started getting good results. He burst onto the world scene at the 2007 UCI MTB World Championships in Fort William, grabbing 12th place in the Junior rankings. The following year, the Colombian took 12th again in the same contest at Val Di Sole. Four-time national champion, 2011 Pan-American champion and a regular on the UCI World Cup scene since 2008, Marcelo has also taken part in events at Crankworx Whister, with second place in both the 2011 and 2012 Garbanzo DH comps. He also took a brilliant top-10 spot in the 2012 UCI MTB DH World Champs in Leogang, beating former world champions in the process. But where Marcelo has also begun to excel is in urban downhill where riders take on courses on steep streets and alleyways of hillside towns and cities. He won his local event in Manizales two years running, and in 2012 came fourth in the famous Valparaíso Cerro Abajo in Chile. In '13, he improved to win the event in spectacular style. Sportsperson
