One of the best MTB videos ever? Chris Akrigg rides again in Five

As one of our favorite shredders, Chris Akrigg has skills for days no matter what bike he’s on. After a terrible injury falling off the side of a cliff and then breaking his leg again, Akrigg looks to be back 100% after a long recovery. His latest film is one of the best combining seamless transitions from bike to bike, and a bit of comedy thrown in for good measure. Great to see you back Chris.

This guy is good. Really good. But he’s also really fun to watch, like he’s really enjoying what he’s doing.

Way to go Chris!

great riding on the blue bike with yellow forks. loved that part going down the stairs on the front wheel and turning.

but only five bikes? noob, my garage is full of different kinds of bikes…lol

he simply chose not to destroy your mind with his actual trials bike or fixie bike – in which he does trials

akrigg is the simple answer to any current or future arguments on mtb wheel sizes. you can rock anything with skill. zealots need to sit down and stfu.

That is possibly the best cycling video I have ever seen! Never heard of the guy and haven’t seen a Mongoose here in Oz for ages, think I want one!

I’d rather watch Chris Akrigg over Danny Macaskill any day! Plus, he’s got some amazing video/producing skills!!
