Video: Downhill race through a crowded shopping mall

Watch this quick edit of Hannes Slavik ripping it up in a very unlikely setting for a DH race.

Video

Check out this sick video featuring Austrian 4x/BMX racer Hannes Slavik as he races through a shopping center in the Czech Republic. The run is complete with several stair escalator steps, one big drop-in and a big jump right at the end. Apparently the event is called the Arkady Downmall held in Prague, Czech Republic and has been going on for a couple of years. This is the GoPro helmet cam from Hannes Slavik, who described his run, “Gopro Final Run: chain jumped during the final run, damaged my balls at the stem :P feeling a little bit down after a save ridden 6.place run in the semi final.”

Thanks to the guys from Leatt Protectives for the video.
