Who does he think he his ? I mean he won't win no Tour de France riding around like that .
I could do it, but I choose not to . It looked like he upset some cows at one point, thats just not on, and what about the golfers. Do you think they want to see some flashy bike chappy going upside down on the 17th ? No they don't . Where's the police when you need them?
what a disgrace. He's all brave riding about like a skilled dandy cyclist but I would like to see how he would do trying to race a Tiger in the jungle or driving a van full of explosives .........

Awesome :thumbup:

This is amazing.

To think this is all done on a top end race bike just goes to show that any kind of cycling is much more down to the rider than the bike.

Martyn Ashton has been around for years and is one of the top mtb trails riders.

Do you know if those are tubular or clincher. Probably tubular.

Well I was impressed.

Now, who says that CF frames are very delicate? :wink:
