Offbeat Video

By Jack Mobley


A determined BMX rider finally got his trick right after falling numerous times – and almost injuring his groin.

This footage shows Jake Campbell, 19, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, falling four times on a metal rail earlier this month in an attempt to pull a double peg, a trick in which both of the bicycle’s pegs slide across the rail.

After the scary falls, which fortunately left him unharmed, Jake was finally able to swiftly slide down the rail and on the footpath in front of it.

Jake said: “The falls didn’t really hurt, as I was able to stand on my tip-toes to protect my groin from the rail. 

“They were still scary though.”
