I built my garden into a lockdown party. Some creative riding With my 5010 Santa Cruz, a lot of Danny Mac influence and use of my trial skills.

As the world struggles to suppress the spread of COVID-19, please follow the guidelines of your local health authorities. Even if you don’t have the virus, bike-related hospital visits put additional stress on your medical systems; do not undertake any activities that put you or others at risk.

 I'm surprised he was able to do anything on that bike. It's the old model with less progressive geometry. I'm not even sure you can fit a water bottle on it. How he managed to even pedal that thing is beyond me.

 I don't really look ad stuff like that just rides what comes to mind : ) And have to say the 5010 feels good for this stuff.
It was my first mtb edit.. but just the start now.. A lot of new idea's bigger ones but looking for some partners to get some fund.. But thnaks forth reaction man always cool to see that the stuff you do does impress people.

 Dude, tighten up that chainsaw chain before you hurt yourself! That's super dangerous! Not to mention adjust your idle and use your chain brake!

 @scotttherider: same (joking aside, shins are fortunately from pedals only) but I have had the chance to see a chain violently jump off the bar at full throttle... fortunately no injury but it was a wild sight

 TO everyone going nuts over him riding in obviously his comfort zone in a Pandemic, dangers for hospital trips are around us 24/7 crossing the road, walking down the stairs, someone else could be a drunk driver and hit you on your "exercise", I get that's their is a pandemic on but he didn't hurt himself and we are all sitting watching it like wow, other than the ones who just like to moan, !WHAT YOU FIND CHALLENGING AND RISK IS WHAT SOME PEOPLE DO OVER AND OVER EACH DAY !
SICK EDIT MAN

 VOTY.
After spending a month looking at my yard and doing nothing other than cleaning up dog crap, running the mower and a round of fertilizer... mostly because I’m not at work... this is what I aspire to for eternity. I did hack a 12” in to a balance bike so my toddler could rip the local dirt, but other than that... this video is the perfect illustration of everything i could ever hope to accomplish on a bike, and done with a sense of humor that I couldn’t conjure under such circumstances. But yes, my chainsaw is in a little better kit than his... and I have a face shield cuz #COVIDCHAINSAW

 He's an absolute beast for what he does and with that rig, but it's "funny" to read at the end of the article the Covid-19 rules "As the world struggle... don't that risk". In that garden and with that tricks even if you are Mac injuries could happen: the point of being together against the situation is to AVOID risks and I sow many of that in this video... All of us would love to go out and ride (even when we could avoid local police to see us), but we don't do it because we respect each other as a community. Or we don't?

 Hello man thank for your your reaction. Do get that people think that it is dangerous. Put i am the kind off guy who plans a lot and try's stuff first on a save way with mat's etc. So i am sure i was never in danger during this video. Also never broke any bone :p But yeah get wat you are saying this was all the time on my mind 2 so did everything as save as possible. ALso here the rules of lockdown i think way less strickt

I dunno but it seems kind of pointless to add this below a video of someone who, although extremely skilled, undertakes activities that clearly put himself at risk.

 Just a disclaimer. And everyone needs to use their best judgement. In my area there’s much less risk than the harder hit areas. So much less that 50+ healthcare workers from one of the big healthcare facilities here went to volunteer in NY. COVID cautions, while wise, are not a one-size-fits-all solution.
