They do it in Swindon.  The kids ride round the car park to warm up, which is a bit iffy with a freewheel and no brakes.
Never tell me the odds.

It looks like a fun & creative new way to get hurt ;D

But exciting to watch, I guess.
Getting there...

Doing this:



on fixed is either going to lock the back wheel up, or hurt...



...a lot!

If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

The local BMX kids seem to manage fine without brakes and freewheel; they jam their foot in between the rear tyre and the seat tube.  This makes quite an impressive skid if you want.
Never tell me the odds.
