Amazing skills include leaping from rooftops

Skill. Chris Akrigg has an abundance of it, and he's put it all on show in this latest video. Okay, it's not a road cycling video, but bikes are bikes and we're going to bend the rules just a little bit. This is worth 8 minutes of your day.

It's really impressive, with some astonishing displays of riding, including leaping from from one building rooftop to another. The video sees him putting a variety of bikes through their paces, including a Mongoose Maurice fixed wheel and even a kids' bike. So sit back and enjoy.

David has worked on the road.cc tech team since July 2012. Previously he was editor of Bikemagic.com and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
