Chris Akrigg is a professional tea drinker, mountain biker and actor...wait, something's not right there! With so many strings to his bow, Chris is nothing if not versatile! Swapping the Yorkshire drizzle for some Spanish sun, Chris is proud to present "Five".
The best thing about this vid (and all of Chris' others) is that he just looks like he's having so much fun.
Climbs like a goat, pedals like an Enduro racer, rides DH like if he had throttle on his bike, combines trial skills in between then in the building under construction shows besides great skills huge balls and then to cool offf the litlle bike????????
Let me not forget the beautiful spanish girl to have one of the best videos ever filmed about Having Fun in a bike!!!!
yeah, mad skillzzz
his survival of that horrible fall that busted his body up real bad (I guess most riders have seen that video of him falling down the rock face), is my indication of his truly mad skillz, as taking a fall from that height and surviving to ride again is a true indication of ninja skillz
Akrigg is at another level entirely. If you meant Dan(ny) MacAskill, then you'd have an argument.
Nice grafitti at 6:59
its sad but true what you say
but we are living in a Global economy and if you want / need a "proper" 'Goose frame get on the internet with your money and you can source one, no problem
WOW! Amazing rider. Uphill - sick. And that huck from one roof to UNDER the top floor was a forehead smasher. Pipe roll - classic. Nose wheelie down the stair ramp? That was insane. Fixie in a wet skate park? Really? Impossible.
On another, more serious note, that was some epic riding. I can't help but think he'd be horrendously slow at DH though - he spend too much time having fun on any and all the features!
Chris, along with Colin Stweart, is a real master in composing, editing and assembling his vids.
Whereas in almost all the other vids shown here the clichés are just poured on ad nauseam (slo-mo, timelapses, for example) with a total disregard of any sort of storyline, Chris knows how to tell the tale and how to make us grin.
Oh yeah - and he just redefined what "all-mountain" riding means
Totally back to true Akrigg form on the bike(s) !!
Has to be one of the most talented all-round riders of his generation.
Again, you are a very talented guy Akrigg.
Even threw in some humor(good one too) in there, just a perfect edit!
crackin' video Chris, good to see your recovered
ALL OF IT was unreal.
Never seen a dude with the jeans of a squirrel, monkey and billy goat all in one and to be able to ride a tykes bike like that!
What a great job making finding bicycles fun!
Beside could be a multi discipline world cup bike athlete, he could be a multi talented artist too????
You could make some people hard to find a job Chris..
Chris, top man!
I hope there's a part 2...3....4...etc...
