  • In a recent video uploaded on YouTube, Fabio Wibmer gives an adrenaline-fuelled demonstration of pure speed on the roads of Lyon and Paris.

  • The video, which has already garnered over 75 lakh hits, has countless clips of the 24-year-old leaping over flights of stairs on his bicycle.

  • A few years ago, Wibmer had uploaded a video of himself riding on a handrailing 200m off the ground at the Kolnbreinsperre Dam.

He’s already made a name for himself as one of the gutsiest riders in the world with death-defying stunts such as cycling on a handrailing 200m off the ground at one of Europe's highest dams (Kölnbreinsperre in Austria), but in a recent video Fabio Wibmer gives an adrenaline-fuelled demonstration of pure speed on the roads of Lyon and Paris.

In a recent video uploaded on his YouTube channel, the Street Trials and MTB Pro Rider from Austria can be seen making his bike fly over stairs, taking sharp turns at angles that seem impossible and doing stunts at gravity-defying heights. All at full throttle, and on the serene city streets of Lyon and Paris.

The video, which has already garnered over 75 lakh hits, has countless clips of the 24-year-old leaping over flights of stairs on his bicycle.

The Austrian has a history of shocking his 3.7 million followers on YouTube. The latest video, called Urban Freeride Lives 3, follows on the heels of his other daring clips from a few years ago. In one of them, he can be seen riding a brown ‘granny bike’ (a bicycle with a step-through frame) down a MTB downhill track.
