Don't try this at home!

Every now and then, I check out a Danny MacAskill video on the YouTube. If there's somebody who can control the trajectory of a bicycle better than this fella, you'll have to clue me in.

He's a trials rider from Scotland. The sport likely evolved from motorcycle trials riding, in which the start-to-finish time is irrelevant. The winner is the one who completes the course - which is very deliberately an obstacle course - with feet off the ground.

This guy is unbelievable.

Does this kind of skill translate to transportation cycling? I like to think he'd be an excellent transportation cyclist! (Wouldn't it be a cryin' shame if he goes everywhere in a car?!!)
