Hot on the heels of yesterday’s post (‘That old health and safety chestnut’), here’s some deliberate disregard for H&S that deserves a healthy dose of respect and a hearty slap on the back. Chris Akrigg is one of those trials riders that make the impossible seem effortless, with a riding skill set that’s rare indeed. This short film shows Chris hopping and jumping his way around some desolate former industrial sites with reckless abandon. It marries up three of my favourite things; cycling, urban exploration and watching other people ride stuff that I know I’d break my neck on. Pop the kettle on.
Incidentally, I am in no way advocating the use of abandoned industrial wastelands as adventure playgrounds*.
