    These are getting ridiculous.

    That is crazy. I wonder how many takes he had to do for some of those. I'm hoping only 1 take for the rail by the cliff.

    Of all of those, the 180 onto the rollers might have impressed me the most.

    Then there's this. I had no idea but apparently Martyn Ashton suffered an accident during the filming of Road Bike Party 2 back in 2013 and has been paralyzed from the waist down ever since. It again reinforces how dangerous these stunts are. This was his first time back on a bike.

    EDIT: Apparently the accident occurred just before filming Road Bike Party 2.

    This behind the scenes are very interesting. https://youtu.be/xhI3CUDEWfU

    Wow, that would be really hard to do, with no good way to move your body around to change your center of gravity around corners and off bumps. Every bump would compress you into the saddle or bounce you off it, even with the seat belt, and you can't shift your weight to the rear, either. Good for him to be able to do it; I doubt many others would be able to do that. I'm almost always out of the saddle and moving around on the bike on descents.
