Crazy downhill racing

Mountain bike downhill racing is crazy for the speeds that can be generated going hell for leather down a trail full of dirt, rocks and trees. In Latin America, they have the specialty of Urban downhill races. This is a downhill race that mixes elements of narrow city streets and patches of dirt wasteland. Bolivia’s equivalent, Descenso del Cóndor, was held last week. The POV clip (below) from winner, Filip Polc, gives us a unique bird’s eye view of what it is like to ride such a race and its dangers.
