Road Bike Party

When I was a teenager I spent a lot of time at mountain bike races. At some of the national races, which turned into week-long trips, you could watch the pro downhill and trials competitions and this was always fun. It remains a special time in my life and I fondly look back at this period.

This video, which Dane at Cold Thistle posted last week, made my day. I knew immediately, by watching his bike handling skills, that Martyn Ashton was a pro trials rider. This video is impressive and uplifting. What's even more amazing is that he doesn't fully trash the $10,000+ road bike he's using. If you haven't seen this video yet, here it is. Enjoy!
