Good video. Thanks for sharing.

A friend of mine posted this a few days ago on FB; I looked at it then, just as I looked at it here a few seconds ago. That young man is an ALIEN from Planet Macaskill.......

Holy cow, this guy is not human. I didn't even think THAT level of skill existed. I mean i've seen trials champions, but this video just had it all.

Pretty great riding, D, but what would your sponsors say if they knew you rode a Mongoose in that video? Or is that a painted Yeti 4x?

Thanks! Ya, it was a camouflaged 4X. For the record, I ride like a hack 99% of the time, just so as not to intimidate the locals. I only ride like that when I'm overseas on photo and video shoots .

he is actually not really that good. if you look closely, at around 2:55, when he drops 20 feet, he dabs.

I saw that dab what a disappointment.

DUDE, I just got the halo vest off yesterday and you post this. Its that kinda stuff (in my small ways) that almost killed me in the first place. I have resigned myself to putting a basket on the front of the Scott and giving the wife's miniature schnausser rides around the park.

That was a fun video.

he is sponsored by mongoose. he rides one in every video he's done. i mean really the frame is the only thing that's going to be "mongoose" the rest is just how nice the components are.
