    Isn't that a power plug on the top tube? :Roflmao And it looks to be the same bike that he posts on his YouTube channel. Focus e-Bike...

    Didn't see the power plug, but I concede after listening a third time and stopping some of the segments, it's an e-bike being ridden by a perfectly capable human. Video pulled.

    PS: I didn't research his YouTube channel or his bike sponsor.

    The rider who passed by me today on Exploration Trail was riding (on an e-bike) like Nino does in that video. It was crazy! I've never seen anyone ride like that live. The rider was making rooster tails of dirt through the DH switchbacks. HE WAS FLYING!

    I couldn't hear the motor in the video, so I dug...

    He mentions on his YouTube channel how he was a hater, but was convinced after one ride. :facepalm: This is the motorcycle he's on:

    In another life - THIS is the type of riding I would love. And the stoke from Christina is contagious. As loose and talented as she is, she does appear to be constantly fighting her large rear wheel on her size s bike, but I guess that's the style now. Enjoy!

    The drone piloting on this might surpass the riding - but the riding is next level! If you don't like this from either a riding point of view or a videography point of view, please pick a different sport!



    These are the types of trails I was born to ride (in my mind anyway). Unfortunately, I will have to be born again in another life to actually ride them. Not enough life left in this life. :( :bang:

    More Fun with Claudio...



    Man I need to get out...

    Sometimes I'm amazed they don't just rip tires right off their bikes

    Martin's riding is about as careless as I've ever seen. Maybe "carefree" is a better descriptor. Just throw yourself sideways and see what happens. He doesn't seem too concerned about much. I thought the same thing about his tires. How they even stayed on his rims is a mystery.

    Notice he uses a rope to get a good look at the entry point and exit that he is about to ride off on two wheels into space / ballistic free fall
