Flying high

A few weeks ago there were Mountain bike competitions in Uppsala. I brought the family to the Botanical garden to watch the “crazy” bike riders, these guys seems totally fearless. My kids were really impressed and the day after it was full speed on their kick bikes (they do not have real bikes yet) at the BMX track next to the playground.

Thanks for your friendly comment. I agree with you Joke it happened several times that these guys crashed but each time they seemed rather unharmed and just walked away. They informed us that the bike riders had practised a lot on falling and falling in the correct way to not get hurt.

It's very spectacular, but it is amazing that it ends well so often. Fantastic pictures, Erik. Taken just at the right moment. Greetings, Joke

Tack Jani, de hoppade bland annat över vägen mellan botaniska trädgården och slottet. Enligt tidningen så hoppade runt 15m. Det var kul att se dessa våghalsar.

Vilka våghalsar, det är ju riktigt högt dom hoppar också.
Det är väl en sak med snö sport då det ofta är lite mjukare i backen men landa fel med cykeln det kan göra mycket ont.
Nåja modiga är dom i alla fall ;)
Idag fastnade jag mest för sista bilden för att du lyckats fånga cyklisten med skärpa och resten snyggt blurrigt :)såna bilder gillar jag.
Ha de
