My kids started back to school this week. Their trip to school in the mornings isn’t nearly as exciting as this kid’s bike ride.

The riding in this video wouldn’t be hard for a good trials rider on a mountain bike but could be challenging on a road bike. The part though that I found hardest to believe is where he rides across the sand on the beach. I know sand can be hard when wet but I’d still think there would be soft spots that would to slow him down. There also seem to be some cuts at just the right time to allow him to dab or something.

My boss sent this to me the beginning of the week but I just got around to posting it because he sent it in Windows Media format. I was a little worried about chewing up too much of my bandwidth if I hosted it. Go Clipless posted a link to this YouTube version so I don’t have to worry about the bandwidth.
Back in the early 90’s when the Colorado Off Road Points Series was a 10 race series and all but one was 2 days of racing, I tried trials riding since I could generally do it after the circuit race. I was single and had plenty of time waiting for the next day’s cross-country race. I was pretty good at getting through technical sections that didn’t require hopping. I never got good at hopping. I won some beginner category trials competitions but never made it past that. It was amazing to watch guys like Hans Rey jumping all over the place.
