Its hard to shoot killer video with a POV camera because they make trails appear more manageable than they are in reality. Big doubles and huge gaps appear as just short blips of air time, and incredibly steep descents and nasty rock gardens look relatively flat. That’s why this clip by Peruvian downhill mountain biker Alejandro Paz, 28, is particularly insane.
Skip ahead 20 seconds and you’ll understand why this video has gone viral. Shot on the San Pedro Casta trail outside Lima, Peru, it’s racked up over a million views since being posted 1 week ago!
