Dan Osman on the bike

To be able to focus as this guy did, when one tiny slip means the end...

I only know about his exploits from the web.

He died because of an equipment failure.

I had never seen him on a bike before I caught this video. Bike action @ 5:40

otherwise, free soloing, free falling, simply free throughout the video

enjoy

WOW that's amazing especially when he's "running" up the rocks and finding handholds!
