Downhill in La Paz

Image result for dh in la paz

Riding bikes is something that most of us know how to do. But there is a more extreme version of it called Downhill. This sport consists of riding a motocross type vehicle but without an engine and thinner wheels. La Paz is a great place to practice this sport not only because of the altitude, but also because it is dry and filled with mountain ranges where you could build tracks and descend. A really popular but secret location where many riders go to enjoy Downhill is a place called Camiraya. This place is located around 30 minutes from la Zona Sur and has a great number of jumps combined with drops, technical sections, and even some road gaps. All of these things are perfect to learn downhill or even just enjoy it if you’re good at it. Every year, a race is organized in South America, where pro racers descend through the streets of a certain city. This race took place in El Alto here in La Paz in 2012. This race is called El Descenso del Condor and is sponsored by Redbull. Although Downhill is a dangerous sport with many possible injuries, it is an amazing and intense sport.
