Bikes & Beer

Lately I have been watching lots of trials videos on youtube.  This is cool.  Back when my friends and I were performing our version of super lame trials on the ISU campus we did not have much for inspiration.  Riding onto a picnic table and jumping off was about as good as it got.  And that was rare…

So I have been watching the latest video of the latest World Trials Darling, this time Danny MacAskill.  He takes up the mantle from Libor Karas, who took it from Hans Rey, near as I can tell.

Hans is featured in lots of video clips, and just as I am not surprised to see the trials rider of today do a front flip off a castle wall, I am also not surprised that Hans NO WAY Rey is takes his own line over the misshapen boulder of beer bottle opening, rather than using clever tools designed to work an axle nut, bottlecap, or wallet.

Thanks to you trials riders for raising the bars and jumping over them, remember your helmet and safety glasses!
