Riding the 7th Street Bridge Arches in Fort Worth
My first post in the BMX forum. Saturday, a BMX stunt rider named Mat Olson rode the arches of the new 7th Street Bridge in Fort Worth. Link to Fort Worth Star-Telegram article.
Even though several cops saw the stunt, they decided to let him off with a warning.
Mat Olson, a professional BMX stunt rider, rode his bike over the bridge’s 24-foot tall arches to the astonishment of onlookers.
“It seemed like I was on top of a mountain,” Olson said. “It was all windy and crazy when I was up there. It was pretty exhilarating, that’s for sure.”
It was also, apparently, pretty illegal.
