It wounds me deeply in my soul to watch that. I am so......small and powerless. I'm also too scared
of breaking limbs to try stuff like that. Oh..to be thirteen again with the bike I have now.

At 38 years of age, both my wheels are going to be firmly planted on the ground at all times.

I hope he goes somewhere with this, impressive!

Ahh the fearlessness of youth. Wow.

Well, Kelowna's gotta be another stop on my northern tier roadtrip. I recognized that step-up-and-over on Boss Hog (from a gallery on Transition's site). Might be embarassing if I wuss out on too much, though.

Thanks for humbling us

That kid is for sure an good rider and has tons of tricks down, but I can't say I like his style.

Now on the other hand Garret Buehler is 15 years old and is just as good as many of the pros twice his age!

Heres a video with him in it...

Heh, the Boss Hog is actually a easy step up, it just look hard.

Have you ever seent he run up to it? Thats the hardest part.

No I don't think I have. It stuck out in my mind when I saw it in Transition Bikes' gallery and thought it looked cool and something I'd actually attempt. We have a dirt-ramp-to-big-rock stepup here at Beacon that has a similar size and trajectory; intimidating to look at before the first try but smooth as butta.
