    Not visited his site for a while just seen that he has updated site including a new video shot in London talk about reclaim the roads and streets.

    If you are anti RLJ probably not for you.

  3. I feel a Daily Mail moment coming on...and I have a very liberal point of view (I think).;)
    Let me start with totally selfish and disrespectful, endangering pedestrians and drivers alike.
    Next.
    PS Nice music, but watch the vid with no music as well.

    He's got to be one of the most enthusiastic cyclists.

    I don't think we would like it if people were doing these antics in cars or on motorbikes.

    Dangerous behaviour, and not to be emulated, but man it's fun to watch ;)
     
  7. Absolute bunch of cants. They want shooting.

    I remember the London video being posted on C+ near its demise. The videos are exciting, but he is an idiot. The video, quite rightly ends with: 'waaankkkaaah'. pretty much sums it up.

    I must say I really loved the NY city one, but when they are doing it in my back yard it is a different story.

    Oh Dom, you old NIMBY you.

    He has absolutely terrible taste in music btw. It's bad enough cringing whilst watching the video without the 80s hair metal soundtrack.
     
  11. That's me with tin ears then - I liked it! ;) (I'm with mickle - I'll reload...)

    I liked the videos and the music.
    Am i the only one that thinks its kinda cool, and that he is good to be able to get through the narrow gaps at such a high speed.
    If you watch one of them, he hits the mirror on a car and the guy comes after him, so he goes on the wrong side of the road. ;)

    It's not good, fine, they've all got skill and we can perhaps be impressed by that, but on the road they endanger quite a few more people than just themselves in their action. It's lucky that the drivers don't have the time to react as they're constantly in the blindspot of most of them, if they did then it could easily turn into an accident.

    If you see the Bronx vid, then there's a poor old lady who accidentally hits one of the racers and is absolutely terrified. The racer apologises to her for his actions, but still, you can't help but feel sorry for her.

    Link didn't work for me at home - maybe just as well - but obvious from the comments that it's the same 'alleycat' nonsense we commented on before. Trouble is, 'alleycat' breeds 'copycat' and the more idiots try to emulate this stuff, the more they are going to get killed. Simple arithmetic. I personally find the whole thing offensive, however 'entertaining' some may deem it. Just as I find child porn offensive. Just as I find animal cruelty offensive. Talk about putting back a hundred years, all our striving and efforts to get cyclists perceived as decent and civilised road users! Things are bad enough on our streets as it is...

    I would PMSL if a copper got hold of this video and used it to fine Mr Brunelle for every red light he jumped!

    Its been done to bikers who have stupidly put their names on videos of them street racing and speeding...
