On top of everything else, this guy appears to be wearing a pinstripe suit.

Thanks al, that made me smile!

He must have almost crashed at :24 where he switched sides with the tape and those guys were running out of the way.

The stairs at :50 would have been fun to watch on regular video or in person. Crazy bucking bronco action there.

Very cool; amazing what you can do in a city/urban environment with some imagination!
... and municipal government's cooperation. Great vid; some of those drops looked huge. I kept worrying he was gonna clip the rail on that staircase.

His bike is probably worth more than the average annual salary of anyone watching. The vast majority in the audience will never get the chance to ride such a high quality rig capable of riding that course yet they cheer him on with enthusiasm unrivaled in the US.

Having been to very poor places you realize that most Americans are oblivious to what they have.

I don't dispute your quote at all, but then again it gets scarier and scarier to compare one's self to most americans. Listening to his post race discussion with the UCI official, I'm not thinking he's another oblivious american, maybe oblivious, but holding a south american passport of some kind would be my best guess. Now, generalization for a political point in a thread about great urban riding, that is an oblivious american trait.:thumbsup:
