Imagine if a sudden gust of wind rustled up? At least we'd have his helmet cam capture the fall... :no:

I think the second half of the vid is worst, it made my hands 'and' feet sweat... ush!





and just in case you're tempted. PLEASE dont try this at home! This video was made by a totally unprofessional lunatic

Oh boy! even the cameraman has balls albeit not as big as the other lunatic.
I felt dizzy just watching this, I had to take my feet off the settee and put them on the floor.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I think I may have to write the Russian govt a letter and tell them about the benefits of opening youth clubs up - and making skate parks to end the teens boredom

Yep, the Russians either become billionaires, football club owners or lunatics doing this sort of stuff.

Yeh me too they're great arent they? make me sweat for real tho some of them!! And 'Parkour' or 'free running', specially with the original French guy who starred in James Bond! Ah - if only that kind of sport had been about when I was young enough to do it, id have loved it!!


Anyway every time I watch a vid I see links to similar, theres many to choose from!

Ah you got to hold your hands up to the guys who build those steps and paths.

Can`t imagine the Russians and the hiking trail have got the same council H&S officers we have here. Would love to see some of our councils work round those sites for a day, they would not know where to start, let alone have the balls to.
