    I doubt there was any vehicle or person in any of the shots that was not there by prior intent of the filmmakers and rider.

    as for me, I've seen some unexplainable things, and done some things I can't quite explain...

    Thanks for pointing them out...I didn't stick around for the whole thing, being sufficiently impressed with the first four minutes or so...I notice at the end, there's also a link to a 47 minute 'behind the scenes' vid...

    I did watch the whole thing. It looks so easy when he does his tricks in the body of the video, the outtakes show that it was not quite that simple.

    There used to--probably still is--something called trials biking where they participants would ride and use the bike to climb up an down natural obstacles like mountains and rugged, hilly terrain. Then there is speedway motorcycles, that run on closed, circular tracks with no brakes.

    I'm familiar with both.
    Both still exist.

    Here's a bike suitable for neither....

    Yeah, I can understand that. Although I have seen some bicyclists and skateboarders pulling some pretty crazy stunts. If they want to do that kind of stuff on race courses or other venues where it's appropriate, that's fine. But when they do it on city streets or public sidewalks, it can get risky and annoying.
