That's why mum's gone to flatland! (pun © VecchioJo)...

Here's a great way to fill a bit of your working day: watch French trickster Mickael Dupont showcase his skills aboard a bike fundamentally unsuitable for the purpose. This is painfully evident when he basically folds it in half jumping it off a wall early on, but a bit of iron bar and welding kit and it's, erm, as good as new. Cue ever more extraordinary stuff, culminating with a full-on backflip down the dirt jumps. Just goes to show it's not about the bike, eh...

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

Just what i thought, a bit rough around the edges but much better that MacAskill as its not top of the range kit

A few bits had me cringing because it was destroying a bike  4

It shows what an inherently crap design the trad open 'women's' frame is - folds up with one good kick. And unnecessarily heavy. You can almost feel the dead weight just watching these jumps, it lands like a sack of spuds. It's not ALL about the bike, no - but it is at least a BIT about the bike.
These guys are just brilliant though, excellent video.

How does someone get so good on a bike and still have his sac intact? Incredible.
