Brendan Fairclough wins Taxco Downhill 2012

News just coming in from the Latin American interwire is that Brendog has won the bonkers street race in Taxco, Mexico!

Valparaiso and Lisbon put urban downhill races on the map and now they’re everywhere, which is a good thing, they’re utterly crazy! Have a look at the helmet cam below, this track has it all, steepness, rocks, roots, loam, tarmac, narrow alleys, big drops, big jumps, barking dogs and wild spectators!

Brendan had said earlier on Twitter: 30 hour trip, crazy place wild people and some even more crazy jumps through the city. If it rains we are all dead.

Lucky for us it didn’t rain and Brendog took the win!

(Thanks to for the heads up.)
