First time I watched it I was involuntarily yelling at some of the jumps etc. that appeared to just go out into thin air!

Mrs Ned was downstairs and was concerned as to what I was doing.

Now she's seen it - she knows!

And she was yelling herself :D

I've just realised that just after the 5 minute mark in the long clip one of the riders has artificial legs!!

A very brave man indeed. Total admiration for him.

Loving that, that would be a total work out for the FTW bike.

It would be nice to have a section for these things, where we could maybe vote on the vids, etc.

I loved this one, makes me wince thinking about wiping out on some of those drops.

There is nothing that would make me do anything like this now, too many injuries over the years to risk it.

I am not risk averse, but there is a limit now.

Props to these riders for giving it some.

I agree it looks worse than it really is, but that goes for everything.

What really makes it gnarly is the racing element.
