Apart from cutting from view to view, no that's not tricked up.

Pretty impressive combination of bike trials and downhill. I'm amazed by how hard he had his suspension pumped up - don;t think he used more than half his travel, despite some pretty hard landings :shock: And the brakes are amazing as well. The short distance in which he pulls up after jumping down onto that boulder near the start was impressive.

Ah, well: one day! :wink:

If only I was a tenth that good :( Awesome technique. Monstrous cojones.

Fairly impressive, but look up Danny MacAskill. He is my hero

Actually this looks new, shows a bit of old footage but a good vid all the same. Always good music with his clips

There are plenty of threads on Danny MacAskill. Suggest you try the search function: you might be surprised at what you find :wink: You could add the video then to an appropriate thread. I am sure others would like to see it too.

This thread was started to recognise another person's skills; namely Chris Akrigg.

Cheers
