    Not really UE-related, but BBC Scotland had a link to this video of Danny MacAskill - some really creative stuff. I'm totally useless at trials, but in admiration of people like this - anyone got any more examples?

    Well impressive I ike how he has a trials come street bmx style of riding, maybe its what all the cool kids are up to, i know I'm out of touch, but whatever its amazing stuff. when i use to mtb the level the pros were at was well below what the local kids are these days. Ive got a BMX and will get it out from time to time in some kind of battle against getting old.

    Trials is some serious skill and judgement so much of what they do has major faceplant on concrete potential, serious respect to those that do it.

    Danny is awesome. When he was riding in London he was totally inspiring. In the latest edition of MBUK there is a dvd with it and Danny is riding in it for a while doing some totally amazing stuff. Watchi it. Or buy it, it's called Home.

    This has always made my jaw drop lol... I once saw 'Tibo' at the London bike show, it was amazing but he did have one fall and sliced his shin on his pedal.
