Chris Vermeulen, who has recently underwent keyhole surgery has just started walking again and he’s already riding his trial bike in an attempt to recover his knee faster for the Assen race. Meanwhile, he’ll skip this weekend’s WSBK round in Valencia, so the video is more of a way to keep fans posted about his evolution.
This is the promo for the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed and it shows trial master Dougie Lampkin in his two-wheeled search for Formula One stars Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button around the Goodwood estate. Also taking part at the rather funny action are bike fan Chris Barrie and chef James Martin. The happy ending is well worth it.
After celebrating 20 years from the fall of the Berlin wall in his characteristic style, freestyle rider Julien Dupont rode his trial bike on the crowded streets of Mexico City as part of his “Ride the World” video series and taught commuters a lesson about the endless benefits of riding a motorcycle instead of driving a car at the cost of the poor people’s own windshields. I believe “carajo!” was the main reaction he generated.
To celebrate 20 years from the fall of the Berlin wall, French freestyle rider Julien Dupont takes on Berlin and ads another episode to his “Ride the World” series of illegal urban activities that we like so much.
Backed up by a professional team, Dupont’s Berlin ride is for the freedom symbolized by the fall of the wall in Berlin.
This is a short video of an organized trial competition, one that catches the very essence of riding a trial motorcycle in nature. The sport requires a lot of patience and calculation, but yet again, there aren’t many motorcycle riders capable of doing that, are they?
This guy takes every single ledge as a challenge when training in the city on its trial motorcycle and the results are simply fabulous. It doesn’t stay in one place too much so that it won’t create a crowd and because the city architecture has a lot to offer, it wouldn’t be in its advantage anyway.
What I like about this video is the fact that it doesn’t try to present the guy as an expert, but as an experienced rider who, normally, makes errors. What would you give in order to have the ability to do what this character does and experience as much as he does in a single day of city riding? I’d sure give a lot!
Training for the 2008 edition of the Festival of Speed is Dougie Lampkin which is allowed to make a round of Goodwood House and it does it in the best way it can: on a trial motorcycle.
The ride offers viewers of the video the opportunity to get a feel of the objects and people inside, exactly how they are. Even better is that they see it through a motorcyclists eyes and that is pretty much how they’ve perceive it anyway.
The trial champion makes an impressive incursion composed of many wheelies, stoppies and 90 degree turns from one move and it is very enjoyable to watch, even though I think it missed lost it on the narrow stairs area, just before reaching the roof. But why don’t you check it out yourself?
We’ve witnessed the 2001 and 2005 world Enduro, many Italian Trial and Trial indoor championships, Supermotard and many other motorcycle events, but the Carnico Motorcycle Club organizes yet another great adventure entitled “Trial World Championship 2008”.
Among the riders who will overcome with great accuracy the natural barriers of 15 special tests in the beautiful resort of Friuli Venezia Giulia are names such as Toni Bou, Adam Raga, Takahisa Fujinami, Albert Gaberstany and many others
