As regular users of this site will know we're partial to the odd BMX video now and again and this one from Milwaukee rider Tim Knoll is a bit special - it's had over two million views on Youtube since Tuesday when it was posted (and when we originally meant to stick it on here, honest).
Knoll's video doesn't feature the sorts of death defying jumps and tricks (or indeed budget) we've come to expect from trials rider supreme, Danny MacAskill. Instead it's a collection of finely honed tricks and stunts that owe a lot to his origins as a flatland BMXer, although this isn't by any means pure flatland as there are obstacles involved in many of the tricks - including lorry trailers although the most impressive bit is him somersaulting off one bike and on to the pegs of another… although you might think differently.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
