This is jumping jumps

This is jumping jumps. It’s not motocross. Don’t confuse the two.

If you want to jump jumps, fine. Go to it. This is cool, too. Focus on it. Try to be the best at it. But don’t get on the track and pretend you’re a racer. You’re not. You’ll just be a 2x loser, not good at either one.

Danny Macaskill: Incredible bicycle trials video

Update 06APR2010: The original location for this video faded into the ether somewhere down the line, so I found it posted somewhere else. I am still blown away every time I see this. The very best FMX riders have nothing on this guy.

I can’t believe I didn’t post this when I first saw it a couple of months ago.  It’s the most amazing free ride bicycle video I have ever seen, and I don’t mean it’s the wildest, hariest, craziest. I mean Danny MacAskill’s is un-freakin-believable as a trials rider on a bike. Just amazing.
