Skill: Sucking up a massive roller

Last weekend Jon Watt was having fun dropping off this stack of logs. Even cooler: He turned around, pedaled like mad and rolled back up it.

Here's how he did it:
  1. First, he used some of that Watt power to achieve ramming speed.
  2. He whipped up a big manual.
  3. He reached the logs fully extended (A).
  4. He let his rear wheel hit the bottom log, which popped his bike into the air (B).
  5. He sucked his bike up and let it roll lightly over the top logs (C).
  6. Note how his head and shoulders went straight over the logs while his bike dealt with all the violence.
