    This has got to be the most insane bike ride down a mountain that I have ever seen.



    Not even ever would I try this. Nope!
    That's one crazy ride Dan Atherton.

    The camera does a good job of capturing the rapid gravity induced acceleration.
    Looks like a lot of fun at least before I rag dolled.
    Danny MacAskill has some good videos also.

    The guys standing on the way with their hands in their pockets are there for insurance, they are ready to catch him if he falls.

    Keep in mind that he does this for a free six pack of red bull.

    I wonder how many times he had to try it before he got it "right".

    Epic.
    Looks like the Red Bull Rampage but with trees.
    I wonder how they decided which trees to put those red pads on.
