Video: Riding on the Edge of a Dubai Skyscraper

Huge exposure, four finger braking and riding with no helmet, there's an awful lot to cringe at in this ridiculous video that has been doing the rounds over the weekend. Take a look as Nikita Deft takes his mountain bike to the top of a 328-metre-tall Al Yaquob skyscraper in Dubai and wobbles around the edge of it.

 Ever seen the videos where this goes wrong?
They're usually WhatsApp-only cos they die - as in for real.
Not as rare as you might think either, you just don't see many snuff videos cos they're illegal.

 Had to double check I was on Pinkbike then and not Youtube. Seriously, what is this doing on here?.... This is how you kickstart the articles for 2019? This type of content is just as tragic as the pre-pubescent London wheelie brigade who have a fetish for touching the side of buses and generally just being dicks.

 Deft by name - not quite so with the riding.... Perhaps he should change his name to Daft. Good job that bike isn't up to date full-enduro-gnar though - the bars would have been too wide.

 Looks like a prime candidate for the Darwin award, hard to feel sorry for fools like this when it goes wrong. I just hope no one's unlucky enough to be directly underneath him or his bike. Here is not the place for videos like this.

 Really? Well it didn't end very well for a chinese guy who fell off following a botched pull up. It dangerous - yes, it's hard even to stay put - yes, but I really hope this guy will do something useful with his life.

 PM sent requesting this be taken down. Irresponsible and doesn't even showcase a rider with skill and elite performance like Rampage does. Not even close to the same thing.
