Every year, during the Imbayah Festival, a number of Ifugao daredevils dressed only in their indigenous garb speed bravely down a perilous mountain road to the town of Banaue. Powered only by gravity, the riders reach speeds of 50 kilometers per hour, almost as fast as a car breezing down a highway. With absolutely no safety measures, nor even a prescribed helmet for protection, one wrong move would cost the racers their lives.
