Yes, the chest strap mount.

Works nice riding the trials, huh?

Not quite conventional Trials, but just as gnarly. One can only assume that he is quite an experienced trials rider.






Nice work huh?

Yeah, wow. I have become a bit infatuated with that GoPro, too.

Nice video. Question. Keep in mind I've never ridden a modern trials bike. That trail doesn't look very technical to be much of a challenge for a trials bike. So which of your bikes would be the most fun to ride on that trail?

Thanks!

The trials bike for sure! That was a four hour ride condensed into seven minutes. There was much more technical terrain that I was riding over throughout the ride but I was more about showing graceful flow on smooth, winding, single-track. (at least trying anyway)

My YZ450 is a fantastic bike, but, the trials bike with its feather weight, low center of gravity, flickability, and grip, the trails are even that much more fun and fast. But that's just my opinion...

Yup, was ranked no 8 in the world a few years back, riding a scorpa!!! Just couldn't quite pull a ride on a good factory team, so when KTM offered him the extreme enduro gig he jumped at it.
