    Pretty impressive

    Saw Hoffman absolutely dominating at NASS a few years ago, think that's gotta the most memorable ride I've ever witnessed in the flesh.

    That bit at 50 seconds defies physics.

    Just imagine how good he'd be if his jeans didn't cut off the circulation to his legs. 🙂

    I always wondered if the move at 2min was possible. I guess it is!

    Hmm.

    Personally I think Danny MacAskill is more impressive

    I saw Danny and Chris Askrigg on the same weekend.
    Danny is not that good 😐

    Makes it all look so easy!

    He's from my hometown, Leigh Park. Roit posh area! Great that he can come out of such a sh1thole and be one of the best in the world.

    Until he learns the simple art of pulling his trousers up properly his riding skills are marked down in my world view.

    Danny M is good and did well out of a web viral but…

    better? You're joking surely, in terms of precision and skill BMX pisses all over most trials stuff.

    Never seen a decade to 360. Amazing. All that 360 to icepick stuff is pretty clever too.

    Good skills, but he does need a belt on those trousers.

    he is really nice to ride with too.
    the stuff he does in the video he does all the time!
    you come up with a combo he has never doen and he nails it first go usually

    Tech-yes,although arguably Harry Main is close.Street-Nathan Williams,Cory Martinez=no chance,not even close.Trails-less than zero style.Park-Dan Dhers-Maddog.All round riders means Gary Young,Mike Aitken,Dennis Ennerson who can shred ANYTHING.Webby is amazing-but a little one dimentional.And yes I have seen him ride at Corby aswell.
    Allround non bmx-Affy.Easily.

    Skillz agreed but has he got leg strength, cardio etc to be good on a Mtb? 😈

    i wonder how many stitches and knock-outs it takes to get that good 😉

    The bit at 2:01 is nuts.

    Danny M. is good, but I remember watching the viral with a friend who was dead impressed, and thinking, this is like watching Sunday League football, its good if you've never seen football before.

    Is Rorschach's post in some kind of code?

    Amazing. Was great to see him riding in the Dew Cup last year after one of his other homemade vids was posted on here.

    I love watching BMX park. It's more spectacular than any other discipline in cycling for me.

    Gary Young's the best cuz he goes dead fast.

    Although very impressive, it doesn't really do much for me, I think it's because it's just tricks in a purpose built skate park by some kid with his arse hanging out of his jeans. I'd probably much rather watch vid of Jedi tottering on a log and certainly MacAskill or Akrigg getting creative using an urban landscape or the local woods.

    I was all for saying something like "that's because you have never seen me ride etc" but damn he is good! That backflip onto the platform – thats v. nice!

    It must be the size of his testicles weighing his pants down

    That guys is amazing, those spinning round and landing on the pedal things are great. lots of very technical stuff I don't understand. But I'd rather watch Danny M anyday, just looks so creative and smooth and flowing.

    But what do I know, I'm just an early 30s mtber who used to be able to jump a few sets of doubles but now has trouble with high kerbs 😆

    all rounder? he looks pretty handy at the bmxing but I would like to see him traipsing through a peat bog in the pissing rain for 3 hrs 😉

    I think he would be wasted riding anything but BMX.

    Amazing.

    Youtube is blocked where I am but if this is the one where he rocks up in a turbo'd mk2 Golf it is definitely one of the best shorts i've seen on the web; Brighton ain't ready (which I think is on Pinkbike) is pretty awesome too.

    the irony of this is that he aint even the best! oh he's very good don't get me wrong… but BMX is just insane right now.

    not to sound too much like a weeny child… but my gosh chase hawk riding trails is still the most epic thing i have seen in my life.

    aitken, hawk and brian foster all make me want to cry they are so good.

    which is why fitlife is still the best biking dvd in the world. ever. fact.

    (i am not 16 i'd like to point out briefly)

    Is Rorschach's post in some kind of code?

    No, but he was probably foaming at the mouth!

    Just got to 2 mins and my thought was "what the hell was that" – even slowing it down by hammering play/pause, I can't quite work it out lol

    Is he bar spinning, but going with the bars himself? And then 360ing?

    Good at tricks.

    All round? is he fast at xc or DH or road then?

    Can he make awesome pancakes though?

    All round?

    BMX riders who end up riding other types of bikes tend to do quite well…

    Tinker Juarez, John Tomac, Nico, Brian Lopes, Anne Caro, Darren Bereclough, Jamie Staff to name a few.

    "BMX riders who end up riding other types of bikes tend to do quite well…" and most of the BMX crossovers that made waves in Mountainbiking were not the best of the best.

    I would really love to see someone really good like Mirra, Ruben or Cramner at a slopestyle event.
