Is road bike trials going to become a new sport?
Road bike trials videos seem to be flying at us thick and fast nowadays. That’s not to say they’re any less entertaining though, in fact when they’re as imaginative as this one by Vittorio Brumotti we think they’re probably better than your standard bike edit.
In this video, Brumotti takes a tour of the Livigno bike park in northern Italy. Along the way he takes a dip in the swimming pool, has a workout in a gym and of course, hits the dusty trails. He shows that he’s just as fast as a local rider and can even take on some pretty big jumps. We’d advise him to ditch the road bike team lycra in future though…
Of course, he’s not the first rider to shred on skinny wheels for our entertainment, check out Chris Akrigg’s ChrisCross and Yoann Barelli for more. The skills are mindblowing but we have to ask, how on Earth do these riders avoid getting punctures?
You can’t help but like this cheeky Italian chappie, even if he does look a bit like England’s football World Cup nemesis, Andrea Pirlo.
