What can you do in an hour? Most people wouldn’t be able to answer the way pro-MTB Adrenalist, Daryl Brown, can. The professional MTB rider managed to cram an exhausting MTB routine into, what he calls, his “power hour.”
As seen in the video above, Identiti Bike Team rider, Daryl Brown, can do a lot in one hour. On an unusually sunny, early March day in the U.K., biking aficionado and videographer, Jamie Ledson, convinced Daryl to take on the power hour challenge. What follows is an onslaught of flips, 360s, no-hand backflips, and many other combinations, tricks and jumps. Daryl is quite eclectic in his style, and Jamie’s filming catches his airborne theatrics across a canvass of sun and the parched-looking dirt in all its yellowed beauty.
Maria Hudd, a sport reporter at Eastbourne Herald, interviewed Daryl Brown on her blog in December of last year. During the interview Brown said, ”obviously there are high consequences in the sport but that doesn’t put me off – I love the sport, the pure adrenaline.”
Daryl goes on to talk about how he’s in the process of attempting to break the Guinness World Record for highest jump, saying, “the current record is five meters something, but I know I can jump eight meters. It takes a while to get through all the stages of applying though, so it won’t be any time soon.”
Enjoy Daryl Brown’s Power Hour and keep an eye out for that World Record. We know we will.
