Throwing yourself off a cliff for guts and glory

Im afraid this blog has been a bit off piste recently. Usually I blog about technology or design, or throw up some cool links, but today its all about bikes and the insanity of freeride.

This is the biggest canyon jump I have ever seen. This would make Evel Knievel proud, because this is like turbo charging the stakes, cloning the legend, making him compete for best trick against himself, and distributing the results on dvd and blu-ray. This is Red Bull Rampage.

On the weekend I took my 10 year old nephew for a ride in Tokai. Shamefully I tried to show off a bit, pulling a few wheelies and taking a few jumps. He knows whats out there, I must have looked a fool.
