Extra scenes and gaffes from the viral vid that's been seen over five million times...

Well, it's been a whirlwind tour for Martyn Ashton's Road Bike Party. When we stuck it on the site ten days ago it had just been uploaded, now it's sitting pretty with a frankly astonishing five million views. It's proper gone viral, as we assume teh kidz are saying.

Martyn's been promising an out-takes vid ever since the final cut went up, and we're happy to announce that it's now live on Youtube and also embedded below for your viewing pleasure. Martyn reveals that the sole damage to the Pinarello Dogma was a puncture and a couple of stratches, that's despite some pretty impressive offs during filming, including *that* bunker backflip. There's a bunch of cool stuff that didn't make the final edit too.

Anyway, it's Friday. So stop reading, and enjoy!

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.

Seen Martyn twice on his Animal Bike Tour, and he is an amazing rider. Such bike handling skills must years of hard work and dedication.

Wonder how many hours the original video took to shoot?  39

Absolute legend. So glad to see he's still got it - and using it. Such a big influence, and helped get me hooked on the way of the wheel after I got my first MTB 16 years ago. Lost count of the number of times I watched 'Chainspotting' and 'Dirty Tricks & Cunning Stunts' on VHS.

I had to type that last bit carefully...

These outtakes definitely marked a great start to my Friday! This guy is an absolute champion, and quite possibly the reason why I took up cycling as my primary form of commute after my last car broke down due to faulty swirl flaps. I tried to carry out some stunts, but the most I could do are some lame bunny hops, but hey, that’s something! I’m now in the midst of trying wheelies, it’s not too easy so I guess there goes my dreams to be the next Martyn Ashton.
