Awesome Video

I found this video on accident, but it is awesome. It has nothing to do with bmx though. These guys are amazing.

that was sick. if you guys like those stunts you should check out the french movie, District B13 (english title).

trials bikes are rigids btw. tires have some cush though.

rigid, as in no suspension.

So, anyone here seen that District B13 movie? It's actually a pretty good action flick and the two main characters do all their own stunts. The commentary was neat to watch too. Only plugging it 'cuz I enjoyed it so much.
