Video round-up: Urban downhill race in Bolivia

Plus Mojo Trail Diaries and Steve Peat, Martyn Ashton and Blake Samson

Our friends over at ChopMTB.com have picked three more must-watch mountain bike videos for us this week. We’ve got an urban downhill race in Bolivia, the second part of the Mojo Trail Diaries trip to Morocco and some famous faces having a go at cross-country racing.

1 Urban DH in Bolivia

Slovakia’s Filip Polc dodged lampposts, jumped flights of steps and hucked off walls to win the third Red Bull Descenso del Condor. His mad dash through Bolivia’s capital city, La Paz, was captured on his GoPro helmet cam for your viewing pleasure. Head to ChopMTB for loads of photos from the race.
