    Some local riders tearing it up on their $5k+ road bikes.

    Those bikes are sturdier than a lot of people think. And, those guys really didn't put much impact on them; they are so smooth. I woulda been most worried about a pinch flat.

    Two things I see here:
    1-That's what I call "getting down in the drops"!
    2-I knew those 29er (i mean 700c) wheels were tough!

    Pretty cool video with great talent....

    That was fantastic! That guy is super skilled! He must be very light on the bike.

    Plus it was France and I love France.

    WOW! The road bike trials was great too. Notice the guy looks like he's floating on the bike. No harsh moves whatsoever!
