Taxco urban downhill mountain bike race filmed on headcam.

In this footage filmed from a camera mounted on a rider’s helmet, we see race winner Brendan Fairclough’s hair-raising descent through the narrow streets of Taxco in Mexico.

Taking part in the 2012 Taxco urban downhill, Fairclough races down steep stairs, on a mud track, through suburban streets, squeezes through alleyways and jumps over makeshift ramps – all in under four and a half minutes. (The Guardian)
