Mountain bikers race downhill in Bolivia

STORY: These mountain bikers are racing downhill

in a 2.23-mile course in La Paz, Bolivia

The winner completed the narrow circuit in six minutes and two seconds

Organizers say they were looking to break the world record for the longest urban downhill course

(Damian Hidalgo, mountain biker) "This type of sport is high-risk because we have to cross obstacles, such as the steps with jumps and descents of more than 45 degrees. The topography of the city of La Paz is suitable for this type of sport, which is why national and international competitors participate in this race."
