 This is the most epicest sequence if have ever laid my eyes upon
  • + 6
 you can tell because of the crank position .... he is coasting in and pedaling out... more to the point who spots where they have taken off from
  • + 5
 Better yet.. watch the water fall up instead of down. Especially frames 10-14

 Conversation between the bored dudes in background:

Dude 1: Man, this park is lame. Nothing ever happens here except old people running out of bread for the pigeons and then being attacked by the whole flock
Dude 2: Yeah, too bad life isn't cool like youtube
Dude 1: No shit, how sick would it be if one of those parkour guys randomly showed up and backflipped off that water fountain??
Dude 2: What? Dude, those videos are all rigged. People can't do stuff like that! Extreme sports are like WWE, totally fake
Dude 1: You're probly right.. Thank god for video games!

...And in the meantime, right before their very eyes, damning every word they've spoken, an eclectic cocktail of balls and steeze is both brewed and swilled in sub 3 seconds

 Haha! My own comment made me laugh! Not bc of the content tho, but rather the realization that if that conversation had been shared between those dudes in the time it took for bike dude to hop over that water.. It would make Alvin & the chipmunks sound like vin diesel!

 Oops, too much six66. Too bad YOU can't go backwards!

 Yeah, this is definitely played backwards. If you go backwards using the buttons it he's actually bunnyhopping and not just magically throwing himself and the bike like when you play it normally.
  • + 4
 As well as the wave going backwards
  • + 1
 and he coasts backward without his cranks moving
  • + 1
 @Gman1582: He could have a freecoaster hub.

 This is the 2º sequence my friend Miguel win, consideration should be taken that the photographer is not professional. Congratulations to him and the rider Pedro Dias.

 Observe as the modern street rider approaches his favourite watering hole, testing the water for danger he leaps over the pond while keeping an ever watchful eye on the crystal blue flow.

 Everytime I read another parody of a documentary tone in the comments I die inside a little bit more. But then again, what did I expect, this are sequence saturday comments after all.

 Miguel Bento successfully unraveled the mysteries of time reversal in Portugal. All the while I sit on my couch and hope that time does not collapse after what has been done!

 Not quite Evil Knievel's death defying Grand Canyon jump, but still he's got hops like Jordan.

 The power of his 180 is so strong it makes the water do its own spin and flow up stream
