The Inertia

So, if we’re being honest, it seems like L.A. Chargers running back Austin Ekeler looks way more natural riding wheelies on a mountain bike than Danny MacAskill does running a football. But that might be because football is an American thing and, well, mountain biking is a universal thing. Most of us have ridden bikes enough to at least attempt a wheelie. And yeah, this might be a little bit of a gimmick, but Danny, being a trials rider and all, still drops some cool hints on how to stay on one wheel. And Austin Ekeler doesn’t just seem like a cool guy, he’s a helluva an athlete, too.
