I did trials a million years ago, tho just on an MTB (and in spandex - nya nya..)

Am curious now to see what it'd be like to do with smaller wheels...

I watched the video like four times. Then I built a ramp in the garden (which I only could for there's no snow anymore since two weeks ago or something). In like 15 years from now you'll be looking at my video, be warned. Well, maybe after 15 years of unemployment and full time training that is.

btw. that's the link to the music video of the song in the clip (I liked the song):

This guys rocks .. I think I found vids of him doing tricks on kids tricycle at a party a while ago. I'd love to see him at a show but last year I didn't see any down South and I'm scared of the North ;-)

Another new Danny Macaskill video.
As always, it's hard to pick a favourite bit, but the crane :shock:

Danny's new vid is amazing, those high roof rail things look terrifying.

If we're talking about 'power' in biketrials then we have to mention Damon Watson

It's not what you do occasionally that makes a difference, it's that which you do everyday that brings progress.

Wow.. that is so impressive, how is it even possible. A back flip on a road bike? :shock:
