I am sure some of you have seen him before.

This guy really makes Magic seem so easy.

Wow, this guy is good

but all those tricks didn't work the first time,

one very short scene he was taking a drink at the RV, they didn't wipe the blood from the right arm, probably why he is always shown in long pants and a red shirt....probably for the same reason the british army used to wear red jackets

:lol:

A few falls when perfecting the trick and the shot, is just a part of life

ask any skateboarder, anyone any good has the local ER on speed dial

What ever...this guy is still good and had a couple of very good videographers to, this was really put together.

Totally awesome! Not being that knowledgeable I was just wondering how many tires and rear axles he busted if any. Some of those drops appeared to be from a pretty good ways up.

That is not a "garden variety" bike.. not a Walmart bike. It is made for that type of "riding" and very strong. Before one gets anywhere near that good you learn to absorb those drops.

Yet of course they do break stuff. I think the hardest on equipment thing he did there is the horizontal spins, a bicycle wheel is very strong straight up and down.. but less so to side loads.

Long pants provide protection. I almost always wear long pants when riding off road. I think his red shirt is just a red shirt. In some of the video he had on a blue one.

Thanks Glenn, I hadn't even thought about the wheel spins and the strength of material needed. That video is still very impressive even after watching a few times.

My kid's been wanting an urban bike. After he sees this video, he'll never forgive me if it ain't under the Christmas tree.

Best,
