You gotta admit the skill level is there and it interests a lot of kids in cycling. Unfortunately it puts a lot of them in the hospital as well. Kinda glad this didn't catch on until I was too old to do it.

No more hazardous than riding on a public road.

I watched somebody attempting some trial moves on a public water fountain. He seemed to be on the very beginning of the learning curve. The results looked painful.

I have no interest in hucking, but damn they're good. I ride a full suspension mountain bike and worry about a few feet drop.... This is amazing...........

OK, gripe at me if you want, call me a troll, whatever...but that's TRIALS riding, NOT hucking. See hucking in Superheros 1.....

Great bit. Great rider. Thanks for the link.

For the confused, hucking refers to the big jumps and drops while the more precision stuff is usually called trialing.

I've always wondered how people learned to do these things without killing themselves in the process.
