Ryan Leech Trials Riding, 2010 Sea Otter Classic

Ryan Leech of Norco Bikes performed two or three trials demos per day during the 2010 Sea Otter Classic. I was fortunate enough to head over with a bunch of the Airborne Flight Crew and catch one of his demos. Man, was it amazing!

Trials riding is a discipline of mountain biking that truly baffles me. The amount of bicycle control required is almost otherworldly! You must know exactly where your wheels are, where they’re going, and how they’re going to get there.

I showed my wife the massively famous video of Danny MacAskill, and she was absolutely blown away by the mad skills that he flaunted in those incredible lines! World-class trials riders such as Danny MacAskill and Ryan Leech truly push the envelope of what is possible on a mountain bike.
