These ultra-skilled bikers will make you want to ride your aging BMX again. However, we remind you: Don't try these tricks at home without practice...unless you like hospitals.
We're pretty sure that you, the cool guy/gal who's reading this right now, knows how to ride a bike. After all, alongside street games like taguan and langit-lupa, it's one of those things kids learn while growing up.
We also bet that some of you decided to "go the extra mile" with your bike riding. By that we mean you tried to learn a trick or two on your two-wheeled ride. Biking with no hands? Jumping over an empty delata? Falling flat on your face?
If you indeed know a few tricks, then good for you, bro! Apir! However, what we're about to show you will probably trump your go-to pasikat move. These tricks need months (or even years) of training, a ballsy attitude, and a stomach that can, well, stomach great heights.
A final reminder: never, ever try these at home or anywhere else unless you're a true expert or is one of the stars in the following videos (pa-autograph naman!). Now, see them below, FHM's list of insane bike stunts not for those with Acrophobia!
1) THE ONE PERFORMED ON TOP OF A BRIDGE
Meet Mat Olson, a pro BMX biker who eats heights for breakfast. As seen on the video, he biked not on the bridge as the rest of us mere mortals would but on top of it, scaling and pedaling along its arches. And yes, he had no harness on! Just a "no fear" attitude and steady biking to accomplish the feat. And it's not like the bridge isn't tall; one slip would've surely landed him on a hospital bed with broken bones—that's if he was lucky enough to survive.
2) THE ONE THAT WAS MADE BY A SCOOTER EXPERT
This one's awesome for a couple of reasons. First, it's performed by someone known for riding scooters and not bikes. Second, he did a trick called the front flip forward bike flip...off a 50-foot ramp! But the awesomest thing here is, the rider, Ryan Williams, is reportedly the first to accomplish the stunt. Sweet!
However, some have questioned the validity of the claim, saying he's not the first one to do so. As of this writing, there's still no formal word on the issue. Whatever the case, the stunt is still epic.
