The big surprise in this legitimately bonkers biking video is that there is absolutely no surprise in what happens. You see everything happen before it happens even though you’re in disbelief as it is about to happen and question if this could really happen. I mean, the bike rider, Primož Ravnik, rides straight down the wall of a 200-foot dam and smacks himself right into the water as if it is a completely natural thing to do.
It sounds so innocent and possibly even sensible when written down like that but when you watch the video, the drop is so steep—it’s a wall and walls by definition are things that are vertical—and the water basically acts as the ground that he crashes into that it’s just pure crazy.
