Watch Sam Pilgrim Pull a Back Flip on a Road Bike

Pro mountain bike freerider Sam Pilgrim conquers San Diego’s trails, skate parks, and dirt jumps aboard the most unlikely of rides — a Tour de France–caliber road bike. Pilgrim rides a carbon-fiber frame from the Belgian brand Ridley, with aero wheels and skinny tires, down sandy beach trails and drainage ditches, pulling back flips along the way.

The video follows two prior Road Bike Party releases which followed Pilgrim’s fellow stunt- and freeride-cyclists bombing through obstacles usually reserved for fat-tired mountain and trials bikes. While the previous stunts were performed in the United Kingdom, Road Bike Party 3 takes the action stateside for the first time in the series.
