 why were those 3 dudes running around fabio and falling all the time?
  • + 28
 They just wanted an autograph

 And why did the amazing Fabio save the best tricks for Paris! The London bits didn't do his enormous talent the same justice at all!
  • + 2
 The guy in the black hoodie was amazing.

 At times this mashup felt forced with Fabio manualing around while the parkourists did their flips but some of the shots like the staircase gap while surrounded by them came out excellently. But, we can never have too much Fabio

 THOSE STAIRS, WTF

 I know... he's the best actor/model.

 @WasatchEnduro: and not the other way around.

 Check out his insta for the raw footage of stair gapping. Mental. Freaking mental.

 Spot on. At the start the bike looked shit. Even I cod have done that part. But later on, with those batshit crazy stair gaps. Just.. wow!
  • + 2
 @WAKIdesigns: yess a pitty they did not set up a propper camera on that take... difficult to undertand after all this huge logistics...
  • + 5
 I often feel that they show the same thing from too many angles in videos. The backflip over the TdF that someone did on a road bike springs to mind. Szymon Godziek was it? It was like two seconds each from eleventeen different angles.

This nutty stair gap is the opposite. I wish I could see it from a decent angle.

 Yes

 @jaame: to be fair I am happy he’s alright Smile

 Check out the behind the scenes vid...the stairset was wayyyyy gnarlier then the actual video lead on

 How he didn't die on that massive stairset still keeps me up at night.
  • + 6
 I've been to those stairs, that is one of the absolute gnarliest things I've ever seen on tape
  • + 15
 did i just watch 5 minutes of fabio doing a wheelie with a coupe stair sets while some homeless dudes are doing flips in the background?
  • + 9
 Not do diminish their performance or anything, they are obviously amazing athletes, but I always found that parkour looks kind of silly with this flipping around constantly. The part where they jump over the roofs is pretty amazing tho.
  • + 3
 I thought it was excellent with the combo of parkour and riding. Parkour ain't my thing but I still appreciate it and for me, the video was overall pretty wicked.
And I've watched the raw footage of that staircase maybe twenty times. Just f*cking nuts!!!! Still shaking my head.
  • + 5
 Love the video, but could do without the dubstep. I mean, look at One Shot, they used an actual song in it and that video is one of the best
  • + 3
 One Shot had a completely different vibe. That music, nice as it was, would definitely not have worked here.
  • + 6
 That was great. Parkour just looks painful to me though, those guys must have ankles made of rubber.
  • + 4
 "Okay Fabio, first I'll have you do a wheelie over here and then jump off these stairs... perfect just do that for the rest of the video!"
  • + 5
 Most radical part of the video was the apparent free movement between the UK and France.
  • + 2
 lol

 Holy shit, great vid, enjoyed every minute. I saw that stair gap raw earlier on redbull's fb and was wondering if a new edit was coming out.
  • + 5
 Not a patch on his other absolutely amazing films. Watchable though.
  • + 5
 Fabio Wibmer is a crazy bastard
  • + 1
 Lose the soundtrack, lose the cringe parkour and you have a wicked video of Fabio with some killer riding. The parkour mashup just doesn't work, comes across as so very forced and as such pales massively in comparison to Fabiolous Escape.

 It would have been way more dope if he was riding around with some happy puppies

 Yes but what about the fact that he is doing this on public roads with numerous pedestrians? Some of us that know the highway code and that a jobsworth copper could fine him for most of his moves. Just being on the pavement is a £30 fine. London already has enough idiot cyclists who don't obey the rules, and who cause numerous fatal accidents every month.

 Check out the behind the scenes video if you haven't...gives a good perspective of how difficult the shoot was

 Looks like London & Paris said it is OK too go there and rip the streets, so go there, but try not too end up filling up the hospitals?
  • + 1
 I would love to see Fabio take his raw talent and balls and put them on a DH track. With training, this guy might be unbeatable.
  • + 1
 Thought it was shit, no roof tops in London, jumping idiots doing the same thing, only redeeming feature was the stair jump, and the music sucked
  • + 3
 These guys are AMAZING...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 3
 3:51 if they fell they would die sketchy
  • + 1
 Yeah that whole part looked scary... esp 4:07
  • + 2
 That sketchy staircase made me cringe the other day, after watching the pov I'm a dribbling mess
  • + 1
 They were so much in a hurry to make sure they film the Eifel tower before the lights are on, right?
  • + 2
 Sudden urge to jump down stairs
  • + 2
 So ummmm freeride ain't dead?

 Worth it just for that triple stair gap. Wow!

 This is how old I am - I thought of the Beatles, Abbey Road album in that picture of them on the road crossing.
  • + 3
 The song they play is Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles while they're crossing?

 Fabio and sick bicycles?
  • + 1
 Hell no this is Sick series (fabio's merchandise/brand) which has been around longer than sick bicycles,

you should probably apologise for even asking that question
