Useless, unless he wears a helmet.

Maybe he’s not wearing a helmet because he’s afraid he would be able to do something interesting and impressive. All I saw was a few tricks over and over and over.

bunch of not even hasbeen dudes giving comments, post yourself doing even a mediocre trick and then you can talk like you know.

I honestly liked it. Sure, he doesn’t wear a helmet and, although I am an outspoken proponent of helmets, this is one case where I think it’s simply rider choice. Helmets are a big issue when riding around traffic or other people/vehicle. A helmet can be the difference between a driver injuring a cyclist or killing a cyclist. In this situation, he is riding in an essentially closed area; it’s simply his right to exercise poor judgement.

But, back to the video… I really enjoyed it. I was really entertained and impressed by the fluidity of the riding.

I’m not super familiar with BMX riding like this, so I’m curious: how does he roll backward without backpedaling?
