Welcome to the middle of the week! It’s time for some videos to distract you from work, unemployment or what other activity else fills your day. This week we’re starting off with Red Bull’s latest bonkers challenge – David Knight, two time motorbike enduro World Champion on a 510cc powered KTM Enduro bike versus Gee Atherton on a pushbike fuelled by his legs and gravity. Who will be faster down the Fort William track?
We’re entirely over the whole snow thing now but this video makes it look much more fun than it’s really been. Some nice bits of exposure too…
Mongoose rider Chris Akrigg has unfixed his fixie. Sadly he lost the brakes – which ended up breaking him. Before that happened he did things that’ll blow your mind and leave chunks of grey matter all over your keyboard.
You may have noticed how excited we’ve been by the news of the Transition Bandit trail bike. Here’s Transition Bikes owner Kyle Young talking about the new bike as well as pinning it. Did we mention we want one?
Want to ride the South Downs? How about doing in in your lunchbreak? Ta daa…
Toby Owen got inspired by Midweek Movies and made this little autumnal gem around the trails in Newbury. Looks rather nice..
The guys from This is Sheffield have made another episode of their web series, riding ‘Truffle Shuffle’ in Wharcliffe Woods. It’s a bit different from your usual… There’s plenty going on in Sheffield at the moment, lots of grass roots racing, people getting involved in access issues and of course, loads of trail building. They’ve also started up the Sean Bean Syndicate – take a look at their T shirts HERE…
This video kept us laughing for hours as we played it over and over again. Well, apart from Matt who kept shouting at them to get up and do it again. Two brave (possibly foolhardy) riders, one gap jump and some of the most brutal cases we’ve seen for a long long time.
We should warn you that the following videos contain bad language and shouldn’t be watched if you’re a child or a sensitive type – or at least turn the sound down so you won’t be corrupted. We apologise if you previously saw these videos and were offended by the language in them.
After we’d seen that video we had a look on their YouTube channel. Turns out they do other sports too. Boys of T1twenty, we salute your enthusiasm and congratulate you on always having a man with a camera around to immortalise the inevitable. Contains swearing, watch out kids…
