German trials rider switches to a road bike with some impressive results

German trials rider Max Schrom was so inspired by the story of Martyn Ashton, star of the Road Bike Party videos, that he decided to produce his own version for his latest video.

Called Road Bike Parkour, Schrom, whose skills have earned him two Guinness World Records, puts a road bike through its paces in the film. The results are impressive.

Earlier this year, Ashton released the follow-up to his original Road Bike Party film. While it was being made, he lost the use of his legs due to a crash that happened while he was giving a stunt display.

Chris Akrigg and Danny MacAskill stepped in to help him complete the video, and a behind the scenes documentary was released earlier this month.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
