Bicycle Tricks

When I decided to try cyclocross, I attended some training sessions called Cross Labs in an attempt to acquire some skills. One of the drills we did was called bike tag, where everyone had to stay within a small area and move around without getting tagged. If you put your foot down, left the prescribed area or fell, you were out. I did not do well. But I did enjoy watching the game unfold, with the last 2 riders balanced incredibly on their bikes for long periods of time, trying to make their opponent crack under the pressure.

My friend Esther shared this crazy bit of video, which reminded me of those games of tag, and was the most amazing little bit of bike handling I’d ever seen.

Until I saw this:

Thanks to ABES for confirming the world is truly dominated by German Biker Chicks.
