Video: crazy biker rides over huge stadium


South African trick biker Brian Capper had a dream. His dream was to ride his motorcycle over the gantry arching a massive stadium near his house. Sometimes we think that when we're going past Wembley Stadium to work on our rocket powered skateboards.

But unlike us, this crazy dude actually thought he'd have a pop at his dream, and the kind owners of the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, South Africa, obliged. As it happens, the stadium hosted seven games at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, including Spain's semi-final victory over Germany.

The arch is 384ft from the ground at its highest point. For reference, that's exactly the same height as one gazillion Rover 25s stacked nose to tail.

The trials bike that Capper is using isn't like an ordinary David Harleyson, though. It has no seat, so it has to be ridden standing up, and it's far, far lighter than an ordinary motorcycle because it's designed to do stunts and climb up stuff.

Anyway, here's the video. Enjoy. And please, don't try riding across the gantry arching over your house. For a start, this guy is "amped," and you're probably not.
