Video: Trials ace Vittorio Brumotti jumps on a road bike - for MTB brand Crank Brothers

Italian struts his stuff ahead of release of Road Bike Free Style 2 at end of this month

Italian rider Vittorio Brumotti has developed quite a thing for road bikes in recent months since the world trials champion teamed up with Peter Sagan and other members of the Tinkoff-Saxo team at a training camp ahead of the 2015 season.

His latest video, for Crank Bros – a brand solidly associated with mountain biking, though they did make a brief foray into road biking a few years back with their Quattro pedals – sees him head to Laguna Beach, California, to show off his skills once again.

The video, which includes him riding through the US firm’s offices, apears below– his Facebook page also reveals that his Road Bike Free Style 2 vide will be landing at the end of the month.

You can watch his first Road Bike Free Style film - inspired by Martyn Ashton's Road Bike Party - here.

When that video was published, Brumotti said: "Martyn was one of my inspirations and I was a huge fan of everything he did on Road Bike Party. My new film is my dedication to Martyn’s work.”

Ashton added: ”I’ve known Vittorio for many years. He brought his energy and style to the competition scene and his passion for riding is legendary in the trials world. He has always wanted to inspire people through his riding and this video is certainly going to do that.”

And here's Tinkoff-Saxo rider Peter Sagan riding rings around Brumotti - who hails from free style hotspot Finale Ligure - at the team's training camp.

Agreed. Good skills but not a patch on the ingenuity and production quality of RBP.

everyone knows their pedals break easily but at least they are putting money on cool videos.

CrankBrothers? Did any of it survive to the end of the video?

A bit too much product placement for my taste.
