One Of The Trickiest Mountain Biking Stunts He’s Ever Attempted
Eskil Ronningsbakken has always been known as a daredevil and a master at being able to balance at just about anything. Primarily known for extreme balancing where the height and danger can make you faint, he once walked a tight rope attached to two hot air balloons while in the air. This time around he took on downhill mountain biking on a rain slick road down a steep mountain with twisting curves BACKWARDS.
This Norwegian took on Trollstigen, a narrow road in Norway that would make people who drive nervous. The picture below will give you an idea of the path he will be mountain biking.
Not only does he mountain bike Trollstigen facing backwards, he does so at 50mph and after watching the video it makes us nervous just seeing him navigate around hairpin turns where any slip would send him barrelling down the mountain to his death.
Take a moment to watch this amazing video, he even navigates around an oncoming car at 1:08 and a hairpin turn at 1:38. Enjoy!
