    Ride like this!

    How much do you have to train to do something like this? This is amazing! You don't even have to ride up the hill, you can just jump over every obstacle.

    Check out more of his stuff. He has a lot of talent ...

    I was trying to find the record. I believe he holds the record for the highest side hop. I will see if I can find it.

    Official bunny hop record help by Jeff Lenosky at 45.5 inches. Unofficial sidehop record is 114cm (45.1 inches)...Ryan thinks there are some euros jumping higher then him. Funny he used to havea full listing of all the records for all types of hops...

    More and more people in trials seem to be using suspension forks... Why?
    Prepare for the worst - that way any surprise will be a pleasant one.

    Why not?...maybe it helps relieve some of the stress from bouncing around 24x7...maybe it allows them to use the rebound adjust to help propel them...maybe it allow them to make a few more mistakes thereby allowing them to go bigger...maybe they want an all round street bike to ride trials and do urban stuff...

    You will notice it is only the Stock's that use suspension. The 20" trials bikes are stll rigid.

    Thanks for the link, man. Iíve seen his site. The pics are crazy. The best one is the jump in to a tennis court. At least I thought it was.
