Video: Cyclists complete mind blowing tricks on a €18,000 road bike
If you’re into cycling in anyway then you’ll appreciate just how hard these tricks are. Even if you don’t like cycling, you should still love this video…
Martyn Ashton, Chris Akrigg and Danny MacAskill all take a break from their day jobs as professional trials bike riders for a spot of road racing in ‘Martyn Ashton’s Road Bike Party 2’. However, old habits die hard and it doesn’t take long before the lads take their €18,000 Colnago C59 Italia for a spot of off road cycling.
If you’re a cyclist who rides into work every morning you’re probably thinking two things; the first being, ‘how is that even possible?’ and the seconding being, ‘I wonder if I could cross a lock on the grand canal without getting off my bike’. Trust us when we say, you probably can’t.
Sadly, Martyn suffered a fairly serious injury to his back during a trials show back in September, so he recruited the help of both Chris Akrigg and Danny MacAskill to finish the video.
Here’s a look at what the Global Cycling Network had to say about the video on YouTube: “Incredible stunts and amazing tricks all completed on a £15,000 Colnago C59 Italia? It can only be a Road Bike Party!
“Lycra-clad trials legend Martyn Ashton's first Road Bike Party was a YouTube sensation, so a sequel HAD to be made, bigger and better than before!
“Martyn was in the middle of filming when his life was transformed by an accident during a trials display, which has left him paralysed from the waist down. Courage, determination and great friends have helped Martyn to complete his vision for what a Road Bike Party is.”
