The Red Bull Descenso del Condor is a crazy downhill urban mountain bike race that is held in La Paz, Bolivia each year. Riders scream through the streets, fly off jumps, roll down stone steps and otherwise go places that they probably shouldn’t. It is a wild ride to say the least, and is best experienced in a video like the one below, which was captured on helmet cam. The video gives us a good idea of what the riders have to contend with as they fly through the course.
Personally, I think I’ll stick to the trails, but it definitely is fun to watch. There was more than one occasion where I was expecting the rider to take the road or some other obvious path, only for him to go in an entirely different direction. This one may not be for the faint of heart.
