Trails is such a great sport for the world of cycling, but often over looked. When I worked for Cannondale I was lucky to meet this guy and later we became good friends. www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZKG0UmdvuY

That was incredible!

I am a proud coward so I won't be trying any of his tricks. But I admire his guts and skill. I feel bad for his mom... she must worry about him like crazy.

Improperly glued tubbie perhaps? :-)

I only bunnyhop if it's panic over potholes or crashes. Tracks sometimes but more often then not I don't carry enough speed to clear the second one...

As cool as this video is, I saw a blind trials rider at Spectacross at NJ State Fair last summer. That was breathtakingly special.

I'm not doing any bunnyhops except when necessary to avoid a crash. I had my hardest crashes doing a bunnyhop.

One day I was on a training ride and when I was riding past an apartment complex and there was a sheet of paper lying in the road. Approaching the piece of paper I bunnyhopped it and flew right over it. Some people outside apparently never saw anything like that and started rooting and cheering. I turned around and hopped it again showing off; then I turned around and did it again then proceeded on my ride. Feeling cocky I decided to jump some double railroad tracks at the bottom of a big hill. You have to get some speed to clear double railroad tracks, they are farther apart than they look! I built up my speed flying down the hill and hopped at just the right time to clear both sets of tracks. This was back in the days when we all rode sewups and it turned out that I hadn't flatted my front tire in at least 6 months. I landed at a slight angle and when my front wheel hit the tire rolled right off. I was slammed down on the road. When I looked at my front rim the glue no longer had any stick and was hard as glass.

After that I figured that I'd save showing off to the pros. I'll still try to hop a rim eating pothole but I no longer bunnyhop for grins.

I hate to think how many bruises and broken bones it took to master these tricks! I've seen some freestyle and trials cyclists do some amazing things but this is a whole different level.

Kids bounce. I was doing bunnyhops in the park at 9... Shame I still can't do them.

Thanks for reposting that... I knew what it was immediately. I love that video. It's absolutely amazing and inspirational (though I don't think I'll be doing anything like that any time soon!)

This may be a re-post but I found it in my YouTube favourites recently and watched it again. And again.
