SlopeStyle Biking Pays a Visit

Click To Play

North Plains, Ore.- Turns out Carl is right. The Max does go past the Zoo and there are towns on the other side of that hill. So we rode out to Hillsboro and pedaled out past Grandma's farm to the Hind Sight MX Park to witness some Slope Style cycling at the Wham Bam Thank You Jam. This sport combines mountian biking, bmx, and moto-cross. The athletic talent is awesome. I'm sure these guys don't have to worry about getting to the gym but they may have to pay the chiropractor a visit or two.

This is a just a taste of the sport which is usually played on the side of a mountian. From the amount fancy cameras I saw there I bet you can get plenty of great video and photos on the internet. You can start at SlopeStyle Promoter Aaron Lutze's Match Videozine.

HiWheel Bike Crash

Extreme Cycling 1887 Style
Watch Video and Read Story

Watch as the legendary Jack Castor wipes out while riding downhill with his legs over the handle bars of his HiWheel bike. Castor has riden accross the US on a HiWheel bike and prefers to ride even the steepest decesents with his legs over the handle bars. Here is his rationale as quoted from

"Coasting the hills with the legs over the bars serves a
couple of purposes. It takes energy to pedal down the hill,
even when not resisting the pedals. Trying to retard the
bike with the pedals can really put the legs to work. On
the other hand, hanging the legs over the bars allows the
rider to completely relax the legs. They get a nice rest,
and are ready to go vigorously again. I have twice coasted
nine miles, and once six miles, on an ordinary. I find that
coasting legs over is the most pleasurable thing I do on the

In this case it was not so pleasurable. It seems the rubber came off his front wheel but take a look for yourself.
