Good 'ol Valparaiso. Took the wrong bus there once and got stuck at the top of a hill about 10 miles from where I intended to go.

That was a stressful watch.
 
2011-03-02 12:37:39 PM  
That was significantly cooler than expected.
 
2011-03-02 12:40:04 PM  
Wow!
 
2011-03-02 01:02:55 PM  
Sidewalks are hardcore!
 
2011-03-02 01:09:08 PM  
That was terrifying.

My back started hurting at the :53 mark

Full-screen was cool, but I think someone stole my wallet.

I don't think that was in Indiana.

Agreed, that was pretty intense!

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who's bike's brakes make an annoying Harrrrrrnk! when applied.

There were so many opportunities for epic fail in that course. Therefore, successfully completing the course makes it so full of win.

// I just wish the camera was tilted a little bit upwards, that's all.
 
2011-03-02 02:32:38 PM  
Cool video, surprised he dosen't have disk brakes.

Panty Sniffer: I don't think that was in Indiana.


I'm quite sure you're right. Then again, I wasn't talking about Indiana.
 
2011-03-02 02:45:40 PM  
Well that was exciting. I'm pretty sure I'd have left most of my face on the sidewalk in the first 10 seconds.
 
2011-03-02 02:45:52 PM  
It's like the Isle of Man TT, but for bicycles.
 
2011-03-02 02:51:08 PM  
Meh - let's see him try to ride a bike uphill. (new window)

Airfoilsguy: Cool video, surprised he dosen't have disk brakes.


Trust me, he did. They sound like that when you start to cook 'em at high speed.

Best part was the skinny stair double. That takes guts! The rest of that course wasn't that hard, but must have been lots of fun ripping by houses and locals.
 
2011-03-02 03:57:37 PM  
Holy crap. I almost bailed out of my desk chair a couple times watching that.

Wow, next year they should mount the camera a little higher on the helmet though.
 
2011-03-02 07:00:32 PM  
I also wish the camera had been pointed up a bit. I kept trying to move my head up so maybe he would do the same and now my neck hurts. other than that it was pretty cool.
Oh and

zeet: Guess this is repost week on fark.

I don't think this is the same video as last time.

Another one of those sports like NASCAR that has its roots in getting away from cops.

That helmet cam needs to be adjusted about 15 degrees higher.

/LOL @ dog hitting the deck when the guy flies over.

Better vid.

- Those plywood ramps were sick.
- "Dog in the way" must be part of the actual track design.
- Poor neighborhoods make the best BMX courses.
- White people are the most annoying fans.
- The out-the-window finish jump was effin ill.
