I think you understated your thread title.

I just finished reading a book called "The Sports Gene". It explains why certain athletes are good at certain things (why Jamaicans are great sprinters, a certain tribe of Kenyans are great distance runners, why Michael Phelps is a great 6'4" swimmer with a 32" inseam). It's all certain gene sets. This guy seems to have gotten the balancing on a bicycle gene, as well as the stupidity gene.

That's really nuts. I remember seeing a video like this Brazilian village biking and thinking it was cool but, the video you posted is extreme.

Ok...but why?

I'm not sure I'd even walk on that path.

We never seem to run out of ways to put our life in peril.

You know what cracks me up?... Right around 23 seconds there is a little spot of orange spray paint on the trail...as if to suggest that part is dangerous!! :-)

It's a dilemma for me......though I admire the guts & skill, I also don't have a lot of sympathy when one of these guys gets hurt/killed if they......miss.

Kind of like people that free climb.....they know what they're doing. Man cannot fly, so if he drops a couple hundred feet because of something he's doing for fun and thrills, well......

Anybody know if the guy on the bike has a parachute?????

10/23/2013 07:34:43 PM · #14
I held my breath...that was insane!
10/23/2013 08:19:23 PM · #15
That was crazy

I think I need to lie down for a while.... my stomach is still doing flip flops just from watching that video.

You can set the playback to 2x or 3x speed. ;-)

Quite and incredible ride! I used to ride motorcycles on trails like that WAY back when I was young, fearless and invincible.

We used to chop up old mopeds back in the day and thrash them over hills and valleys but this is a different level.
