Best of Bunnyhopping The Barriers at Cyclocross Nationals

Visit for more Videos

It might not always be the fastest way over the barriers and it's great way to end your race in a flash of pain and embarrassment, but there is just no denying how awesome bunny hopping the barriers is. Even Jeremy Powers, who was sitting solidly in third place at Cyclocross Nationals, chose to hop the barriers nearly every lap. He insisted on hopping rather than dismounting even though he was pretty much hitting the barriers sideways by the end, and just as close to knocking them over as anything. He could have easily lost his podium spot, but he knew he wasn't going to win, so he opted to entertain the fans rather than simply ride home safely.

The guy is aces in our book.

The other guys in the video are no schlubs either. They may have been well off the back of the race, but they gained valuable style points by cleanly roosting over the barriers consistently.

Those guys are all aces in our book too. It's a big book. It's called "The Big Book of People Who Pedro's Thinks Are Aces."
