Video: Best Ride Ever! Four Year Old Shreds Hellion w/ Helmet Cam

It’s long, but worth it. Catch the line at 1:01 – priceless. Here’s the description from YouTube:

Malcolm’s first Descent of the first ramp on Hellion at Highland Park (age 4 yrs). Thanks everyone for your encouragement and comments. Malcolm lives in Maine. We ride often at Highland Mtn Bike Park enjoying not only the incredible trails, but the supportive and friendly community and staff which Mark Hayes has created. Kudos to all of you there, and thanks for having us. Malcolm also participted in The Maine Youth Bike Race Seris (in Falmouth, ME) this past summer. It’s another wonderful place for kids to get together to ride and have fun. Thanks to Andrew Freye for organizing this event.¬†Malcs is indeed 4 years old and hopes that this video will encourage other kids and their caregivers to get out there and ride! Again, glad people are enjoying the video.
-Dan (aka Malc’s Dad)

Makes you wanna get out there and ride!

There is nothing better in the world than unedited kid narrative!! What kind of bike is he riding?

Michael - 10/05/12 - 12:01pm

7:20 “Look at the drop!”

Absolutely amazing and inspiring. I have a four year old and she is only comfortable on training wheels on flat ground. What an amazing little talent!

Have fun out there and ride safe.

I don’t get it? That exactly what my friends sound like and they’re in their late 20’s.

Andrew F - 10/05/12 - 1:53pm

^^^^ That’s what my friends and I sound like and we’re at or almost in our 40s.

Such a rad video.

The video gives the sound of a kid hooked on cycling for life.

NIce! It looks like he’s riding a 16 inch Specialized Hotrock? with a hand brake, maybe no coster? With green Oury grips! I like how he called out his dad on the drop “Look at the drop! You wouldn’t be afraid of doing that!?!” and “Can you see?’ – “No, I don’t have to pee!” was also pretty hilarious.

I wanted to believe that was photoshop footage or a midget riding but then I saw the shadow and realized its for real! Real awesome!!!! I am lame compared to this little dare devil.

Nice Fly racing gloves and Kali helmet. BMX also?

Mark - 10/05/12 - 9:08pm

I hear that same voice in my head when I’m riding!

Keep killing it, Malcom. Great job, dad!

“I can do it! Now I don’t have to just watch the guys. I can do it like the guys.”

Right on. Now you are one.
