For those of you that aspire to a ride like this- Don't bother. The rider, or one of them is Hans Rey. That name should be said with reverence as the worlds best Trial- trick and Technical mountain bike rider in the world. And We do have a couple of good trials riders in the UK so rate him highly.

And NO- I do not even want to ride this sort of trail.

How did you get pictures of me on my cycle? I didn't see any photographers!

In one of the pictures, I think I see the edge of the helicopter that lifted them to that ledge.

Would one be a sourball scrooge to wonder at the authenticity of those photos?

In any event, I think Berts' return is at least as admirable.
