The Taxco Urban Downhill race is one place you don’t want to make a mistake. One small error and you’re flying headfirst into a concrete wall, or a wall of spectators, or a telephone pole… After having an epic qualification run in the Urban Downhill event in Taxco, Mexico, things took a turn for the worse for downhill racer Marcelo Gutierrez. A slippery corner sent the pro rider straight into the ground in one of the fastest sections of the track, and he took a direct hit to the head. Fortunately enough Marcelo was able to walk away from this one, only with a small but serious injury in one of his fingers on his right hand. We are happy to know that he is recovering now, but this is definitely a video we won’t easily forget. Check out Marcelo Gutierrez downhill crash MTB in Taxco Mexico.
