Watch Cyclists Jump Over Random Statues Because Sparta Wisconsin is the Bike Capital of the World

Because Sparta, Wisconsin is the self-proclaimed “Bicycle Capital of America.” And, you know, elephants and stuff. There are also graphics added. Here’s a blurb explaining what you’re about to watch in more detail: “As curiosity pushed them to find epic spots to session, the two unearthed a 9-acre lot with over 600 ride-able statue molds. The lot, which is managed by a fiberglass manufacturing business named Fast Corp, overflowed with line options that allowed Kenny and Thomas to showcase their bike skills – from stylish stalls off a locomotive roof to a 20 foot trojan horse drop. With help from the town’s mascot, Ben Biken, Tom and Kenny mastered the fantasy like features and proved that biking is without a doubt the pulse of Sparta, WI. The part-animated video will debute on redbull.com and features 3:00 of mountain bike trials action.”
