Video: The Turning Point
Think you’re a good mountain biker? Think you can even call yourself a “mountain biker?” Well, unless you quite literally ride your bike down the side of mountains like Chris Akrigg, then no, you cannot. But “The Turning Point” is much more than video of a world-class rider showing off his skills. Put into the context of the fact that it was shot one year after Akrigg shattered his leg, the clip becomes even more amazing.
The skills displayed here are incredible as Akrigg has an epic daytime adventure crawling through a cave, climbing up cliffs with his bike strapped to his back, crossing streams, and finally riding down a boulder-strewn mountainside that eventually spills onto swooping singletrack that he flies down to the valley below.
Yea, this guy’s not bad on a bike… I guess.
