    holy crap..

    he's like spiderman on wheels. Can you imagine having that kind of bike/body control?
    As for the Pyramids, there is nothing to wonder at in them so much as the fact that so many men could be found degraded enough to spend their lives constructing a tomb for some ambitious booby, whom it would have been wiser and manlier to have drowned in the Nile, and then given his body to the dogs. - Henry David Thoreau

    like I am supposed to be impressed by that...

    But seriously, that just made my day. That kid rips!!!
    After watching that, I immediately went outside, got on my bike, and realized how much I suck. Oh well, I have too many injuries anyway.
    BTW, I really appreciate the fact he is wearing a helmet!

    Imagine all the chicks he must pick up that way...

    He does things on a bike that I (or he probably) couldn't do on foot. That's amazing. Especially the way he hurdles overthings.


    ... and I can't even lift both wheels off the ground.

    No doubt that Craig Lee Scott (the guy in the vid) had huevos of steel, but if you want to see some of the best riding in the world, check this vid out.

    You will most likely have to register with the site (if you can be bothered) to see it, but it's totally worth the effort.

    Also, if you're interested in seeing more, check the site out a few times over the next couple of weeks. One of the best riders in the world, Vincent Hermance of France, has been visiting the US and a few of those CO riders have been capturing some amazing vids.

    Man, I love that stuff. Unreal.

    Some people wish they had beautiful singing voices, or enormous johnsons, but I'd be happy if I had some trials skills. I tried for a while, and boy do I not.

    Thanks for posting. My parents-in-law are on the phone, and listening on mute eases the pain ...

    Anyone here go to the Banff Mountain Film Festival?

    http://www.banffcentre.ca/mountaincu...estivals/film/

    I went to it this year. It's a compilation of short films (similar to what we watched) ranging from extreme sports to mountain culture. Anyway, they had a short film of a guy doing the same stuff on a full size frame w/ 26" wheels!!!! I think a larger rig would be harder to deal with.

    i remember when trials comps were done at races using the same bike you rode during the race. nothing was that crazy but still some tough shiite.

    was psi was that guy running. after awhile i was thinking "pinch flat" city.

    that was fun to watch.

    Funny. Upon seeing him mess up and land with one leg on each side of the fence, the words "pinch flat" also came to my mind.

    If I were him, I think I would have my testicles surglically reimplanted to someplace a little less endagered - like a lucite box.
