What a bunch of ******bags. Looks like a great way to get yourself killed or kill some unwary pedestrian. It wasn't skills that stopped anything bad from happening, just dumb luck.

And just in case I didn't make myself clear, ****ing stupid is what these guys are.

Yeah, these guys are just a bunch of ****ing idiots, going the wrong way, cutting in front of cars, taking a chance at nailing a ped that may be walking across the street (at the corner I may add!) those are the ****ing ******* that **** eveything up for the rest of us, sad mother ****ers that think they have skills, and whats even sadder is we have a member that actually thinks that they do indeed have skills!? What a bunch of ****ing idiots.

Jealous of what? Being a ****ing moron? I prove my bike handling skill on the trails, not when I have the potential to injure or kill some person just trying to walk across the street.

Since I'm an urban cyclist (commuter mostly) I admire their traffic-dodging skills...impressive.

I agree with everything you say, yet, wow, that was some amazing footage. I used to be appalled by JoeyBike but he looks tame compared to this.

I'd rather die what I love doing than die in a nursing home. Death is certain regardless!
