Video: "Amazing" - Danny MacAskill's verdict on BMX skills of NZ twins aged FOUR

Watch Jake and Theo run through their repertoire - and have the odd mild wipeout

When Danny MacAskill describes someone's bike handling skills as "amazing," its worth taking notice - and when it's twin brothers aged just 4 years, the video just has to be worth watching.

Twins Jake and Theo Riddle from Queenstown on New Zealand's South Island have their fair share of spills in this video posted to YouTube a couple of months ago, but thinking back to our own experiences at their age on the bike, they're on another planet.

We still needed stabilisers back then, after all... and we reckon the twins could have a big future on two wheels.

Even if they don't, they've certainly got a handle on the most important part of cycling - having fun, and lots of it.
