    A video you NEED to check out..

    OK, so some of you may have seen it by now, but anyway. For the rest of you, sit back in awe at the skills of Chris Akrigg's latest work.

    In my dreams, I still can't do stuff like that.

    Great video, thanks for posting. Lots of those mad bike skillz movies start to bore me after about a minute or so. This one made me smile all the way through!

    And yeah, I wish I could ride like that.

    I love everything about this video. Compared to my modest collection of dvd's and old video tapes this blows them all away. It's also a painful reminder how much I SUUUUUUCCCKKK!

    Take a look at his other videos on vimeo too. I particularly like his Brakeless 2 which is a couple of years old. (Don't try that stuff at home...)

    I don't know guys, seems like he has a real hard time staying on the trail. He kept ending up on top of rocks and buildings, I think he could have really benefited from a local guide service.

    I didn't think the "mad skillz" everyone was raving about were editing skills... I could be wrong though

    This one begins with some bloopers, and "sort of" ends with one too:

    The bike is a Mongoose but I am not sure which model. Not a BMX, though: something from the MTB dirt range, I believe.
