Mountain Unicycling

I found a trailer to what looks like a pretty wicked mountain-unicycling video...

http://gprime.net/video.php/crazyunicycling

These guys really impress me...Once when I was riding up at Hood River I was on the side of the trail taking a break and this unicyclist comes barrelling down a super technical rooty trail. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

do they wear cups, it looks like one of those could inflict so serious damage.
