Can't find it right now, but I watched one of these downhill racer types on youtube a few weeks ago and saw one of these guys go over an embankment, through some brush, and a rock pile before he finally stopped... broke his wrist and I think his arm, and rashed him up pretty good every where that was exposed.... I know chicks dig scars, but I don't think they dig idiots all that much....

Good God is that dangerous. Courage is in short supply these days and I admire it when I see it.

dude has some skills and serious calf & ankle muscles. watch his feet. but ya, if he wipes out out that speed in those clothes, he's fugged. but seeing how he can slow down so fast and handle those curves, he probably doesn't wipe out.

That was cool. Looks like great fun. Dangerous as hell, though. Amazing how his body profile against the air is a control mechanism for acceleration/deceleration.

I bet he has some vivid dreams.

The best men rot in filthy jails;
And they who cried: “Appease, Appease!”
Are hanged by men they tried to please.
