Ryan Nyquist brings some small measure of credibility to tallbikes. They’re still good for riding through neighborhoods looking for abandoned pools, too. And, yes, BMX tallbike is an oxymoron, but the riding is still pretty good.
It would seem that in some ways the federal government in Russia is more permissible than that in the U.S. For example, they let a BMX rider into the National Spacecraft Control and Testing Centre so he could ride around in satellite dishes suspended hundreds of feet above the ground. In the U.S., this would be a hard stunt to get government backing. Perhaps my second grade teacher slightly exaggerated all those years ago when she told me that people in the USSR were routinely shot on the streets for expressing the desire to be ‘free.’
I’d tell you what time to jump for the full pipe ride, but then you’d miss all the insane riding before it. Insane. Red Bull’s Full Circle is a BMX situation that sends a handful of their athlestes around the world on a ‘ride and seek’ series. This one takes place in Wyoming, on what I’m guessing is a former ICBM base.
I remember reading a retrospective review of Philip K Dick’s work, and it made the fantastic point that as fans of his work grow older and move into more influential roles, Dick’s stature as a writer would rise. As BMX riders grow older, I look forward to more of these kinds of videos. Then again, I have no idea how old the guy is who made this particular video, but I’m sure that won’t inhibit your enjoyment of it at all.
