Robinson was one of the world’s top 25 riders invited to take part in the DH Medellin C13 Challenge.

Following the race, a delighted Robinson took to social media and posted: “Comuna 13, what a beautiful and inspiring place.

“I had an awesome day riding the world’s longest urban downhill and getting myself into the Guinness World Records. I am super happy with how I raced.”
