    great video.

    the road biking that we do is pretty simply. ride often and get better. not a lot of hand eye coordination or athletic ability required. what this guy does is f'ing cool.

    thanks for sharing.

    The one footed nose manual with foot brake at the begining is on a whole other level.

    Whenever I see this kind of thing, I always wonder -- what possesses some one to attempt this kind of thing FOR THE FIRST TIME?

    Awesome video. No brakes makes it even more so.

    This kid has brakes but it's still pretty freakin' impressive-

    You work up to it. Foam pits have pushed things further along too.

    Not sure why I even bothered to watch that - his stem is too short, and his bars way too high.


    (btw, that was a joke)

    Next time I am in my road bike I will feel like a Hamster on those wheel things, mindlessly turning the pedals

    although the amplitude and technical tricks are not there I've always preferred riding like this

    the speed they can maintain though the bowl sections is frightening

    Good stuff. Watching that Sandoval video gives me sweaty palms.

    Amazing. I can't figure out how guys like this learn to do tricks like these without dying in the process.

    I can do some of this stuff. Like, at first when he is putting his helmet on, and then his shoes. I can do those.
