Nailing a full loop on any kind of bike is a pretty sketchy affair, as are many other things in the wonderful world of action sports.
Kink BMX Rider Chad Osburn stomped a particularly sketchy loop recently though, after he lost contact with the pipe he was riding halfway through, before just about reconnecting in time to prevent himself getting a nasty head bang.
“He actually loses contact with the pipe at around 11 o’clock, only to be miraculously caught and saved…”
Given that he wasn’t wearing a helmet, it’s safe to say that Chad will be rather thankful he pulled it off. Here’s the rest of the story from the Kink Bikes guys behind the camera:
“We passed by this skatepark one morning while on a filming trip in Northern California for Squash It. Chad casually pulled up next to the van at a nearby traffic light and said something about wanting to loop the full pipe we had just passed.
“The skaters at the park weren’t stoked that we were there, that is until they figured out what Chad wanted to try. A few run ups later and Chad charged it, the craziest thing we’ve ever seen. He actually loses contact with the pipe at around 11 o’clock, only to be miraculously caught and saved. Wild.”
