Following from Aushiker's post in the MTB section about Chris Akrigg, I found a little gem you guys might like.

Enjoy. 8)

Thanks TG. Interesting to see the slo-mo of him hopping up a large rock at 0:40. I've never been able to do it. Then I've been more interested in XC in the past. I rode with a kid at school when we used to ride BMX bikes that could go up about 6 or 7 steps at a time doing that. Never committed the time to learn it. Maybe too slow-twitch to do it well too. Some people can do endurance well while others can jump. :)

Yes, I noticed that. He does brakeless trials too. :shock:

If you have a look at his youtube channel, he does similar stuff with a fixie too. Now that's impressive.
