Martyn Ashton’s Road Bike Party Oct 9, 2012

There are a few things here that are a bit hokie (music for one) but these videos are always fun to watch. Major laughs at the close-up of the rookie marks on his calf. More info:

“Martyn Ashton takes the £10k carbon road bike used by Team Sky’s Bradley Wiggins & Mark Cavendish for a ride with a difference. With a plan to push the limits of road biking as far as his lycra legs would dare, Martyn looked to get his ultimate ride out of the awesome Pinarello Dogma 2. This bike won the 2012 Tour de France – surely it deserves a Road Bike Party!

Shot in various locations around the UK and featuring music from ‘Sound of Guns’. Road Bike Party captures some of the toughest stunts ever pulled on a carbon road bike.”

    This was so insane. I love watching videos like this because it really points out, it’s not the bike it’s the rider. Some of the stuff he did on that road bike is unbelievable, the silver bike rack pogos…. What the heck!

    Hokie or not, still better than any FGFS video I’ve seen…

      that’s because he’s a professional trials rider.

    I think the music placed is an example of English humor, it just appears intentional but really is so for a different reason. The WD40 wipe down? Please the sponsor with similar humor, maybe. Fantastic video, amazing skills.
