Normally, I find you just have to mention "dirt", "mud", or "knobbies" to make a roadie wince. Gretat videos.

That is amazing riding! That guy is so good... not to mention doing that on a road bike!

Ack.

Ok, try this one.

To describe the original vid I posted, the guy was doing trials riding, including sessioning at a dirt pump track on a road bike with a Dura Ace carbon wheelset.

I know componentry is ridiculously over-engineered, but I was wincing when the rider was doing 5 foot drops and hucking doubles with his gear, and I'm not even a roadie.

Pain is weakness leaving the body.

Drat... I was too late for the first video... it's been "withdrawn" because of copyright issues.

That's pretty groovy but checkout this guy in Europe: www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4P3yp6mFfY

Talk about extreme. Also, notice his tires - very little pressure. (^_^)

The sad, and unbelievable, thing is he died from injuries sustained when he jumped backward into a swimming pool: www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-103
