The hill ride in the beginning is weak but the 180 skid makes up for it:

How do they skid so easily like that?

it looks like they're not putting any effort into it at all.

Mitch, they're at an area called the Clocktower in San Francisco. The surface for a lot of those night time moves was really smooth (if not polished). Way different than trying skids like that on asphalt, etc.

yea. what eyefloater said.
you should try skidding in an apartment garage. its AMAZING.
the ground is smooth concrete. and if its really humid, the ground is wet and man.. skidding is smooth as butter on those days.

I saw you try it once, but can you actually do riding backwards/backwards 360s?

Man, I can't believe Edmonton lost! I was told at the beginning of CV that Edmonton was up 3-1...

WTF!

It's not always like that. Hammerfest-y, I mean. This was a particularly hammer-y CV. Next CV, I vote bar biking.
