No doubt this will soon start popping up in BBC current affairs programmes discussing reckless cyclists and how they all need to have insurance and pay "road tax"

It will be road tax soon (without the quotes).
Never tell me the odds.

It wasn't even clear to me where the intended path was, and as for the jumps...  :o

The scariest thing is that there were at least 21 other individuals also willing to ride that route.

It is part of the Red Bull Rampage.
I think the riders can pick their own routes down the hill, and build jumps etc where they want.

There's plenty of extreme videos around. This one shows how steep and narrow parts of it are. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERLlROldAeo

Holy shit - that is insane.

I love this comment:

I'm curious as to how these spots are even found...

Look Jim, we could start here. Ride through this rock and cliff. Then get to that area over there where it's only wide enough for two snakes to fuck. After that, we can fly through the air to the other side of the mountain, make a right at the cactus that is ready to shove it's thorns right up our asses. Finally, we come to a stop at the bottom where there is no way to get back to civilization

"only wide enough for two snakes to fuck" :D

Once, when somewhat lagered-up, I was challenged to ride an MTB along the top of a concrete wall about a foot wide with a 30 ft drop on one side.  I did it.  Then we had a "who can do the biggest skid" competition and I twisted my knee.
