I LOVE trials riding. As an old fart I can only dream of riding like that, and when I do dream of it I usually get woken by my wife who says I kicked her.
My favourite rider is a pro by the name of Ryan Leech. He's a local boy who now also does motivational speaking to teens and others (anti-drug, pro-determination, etc).
Here's his Crux video teaser ...
Here's a VW commercial from Danny MacAskill http://www.nsmb.com/3354-danny-macaskill-vw-commercial. It has virtually nothing to do with VDub but its a fun commercial
I have heard of Ryan Leech.
That trials riding reminds me of the crap I tried on my bike around Tokyo. The most I could do was a stoppie then balance on the front wheel then turn direction by swinging the rest of the bike and pivoting on the front wheel. Of course I could run down stairs, hop curbs, and wheelie.
Cool video, Mark. Looks like bicycle ballet!
I'm really impressed as well with the crazy stuff that Parkour or free-running practitioners do. Some stunts are downright dangerous. And no helmet!
Example: (jump to the 2 minute mark. The first par is just warm-up.)
Funny as I was doing alot of the same stufff 30 years ago on my BMX bike with a front brake. Loved going to the old playgrounds and jumping around the little kids stuff.
Back in the day I did some "free running" we just called it running wild:lol:
Lost a front tooth once, beer was involved:arf:
One of those "look Ma... no (brains...)" moments?
More like "Hold my beer for me, and watch this"
Redneck famous last words...........
"Hey Naterbob, watch this !"
