    One word...WOW! Being a 7 time world champion trials riders is one thing. Doing that stuff on a T7 is another.

    I love that they had some behind the scenes and outtakes in the video. The guys is fukin talented for sure but it shows the stunts were carefully planned out and the cinematography is brilliant in making it feel like it was a lot more “...hold my beer” and less “... well the launch angles just aren’t right... we can’t go until Marketing gives the approval...”

    forget scraping pegs... he was scraping blinkers.

    That’s a big bike to throw around like that. And no way in hell would I try crossing that dam on wheels. No way!

    ‘7 time world trials champion’ was Pol’s uncle... Jordi Tarres... though Pol did ride the world trials championships before swapping to extreme enduro recently. He’s a big guy too (6’4”) and can certainly throw a bike around .

    Great video.

    Wheels.. I wouldn't walk across it.

    One didn't care for the T7, they do now.. and that was a lot of editing.

    Ah ha...I didn't catch that...so the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I don't know these trials guys by name. When I saw your post I watched some vids of this guy, Pol, and I can't imagine why he didn't make world champ too...LOL! His involvement in extreme enduro makes more sense seeing how he handled this T7. Some of his vids with him on a real dirt bike make your hair stand on end. I'm not dissin' trials, but his extreme enduro/stunt maneuvers are impressive.

    You should Google videos of Toni Bou then if you want to see the sharp end of what trials skills have evolved to ( and are required to win a world round, let alone the championship) these days.

    Bou is incredible (and long has been) but still Tarres' video is a revelation on what is possible on a big bike, in my book.
    Chris Birch has long been famous for making the big KTMs dance but all his videos just went obsolete.
