It would take a lot of convincing and probably money for you to get any of us doing this stunt and we are pretty sure you would feel the same, but Norwegian daredevil ‘Eskil’ LOVES IT!!
Yep, that pretty much makes him mad!
The Norwegian rides his bicycle backwards down a road aptly titled ‘Trollstigen’ which translates to ‘Trolls’ Path in English’. It is one of the steepest, winding roads you will see which means Eskil reaches speeds of 50mph during the 2.8 mile decent.
If this isn’t bad enough Eskil attempts this stunt while he rides his bicycle backwards and with oncoming traffic in the way! What a guy!
Quite an inspiration… here’s what he says about himself on his dedicated website:
“Eskil has spent his entire life living on the edge creating art that makes a difference. The goal is not just to leave an imprint on mind. The goal is to move boundaries, inspire and show humans all over the world that anything is possible.”
“Eskil performs live, at TV-programs, in movies and exceptionally by promotional actions. He is also giving lectures about his journey from a little village in Norway to great international success, his unique working methods and the balance between life and death.”
