Amazing cycling video - Also no folder content

I just saw this video and had to share - http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v...G6tw&vq=medium

It's the most amazing display of bike handling. Wow.

There was a video of this guy on here about a year ago. He is amazing. Have to wonder how his knees are holding up!

Our niece in Vancouver, BC has some friends who do this same type of riding, but on wooden tracks they build themselves. From what she said, and from watching a couple of their videos, they have had some serious injuries at times. One of the videos I saw showed some of their practice 'mistakes'.

Not something seniors, like me, should be doing.

Jaw-dropping bicyclist of this parish. Over the last few years his skills have become more, er, awesomer, as he leaps tall buildings etc. He appears at a lot of bike and car shows here. Astonishing rider.
