Somebody, make this guy into a video game!
Tim Knoll, a bicycle enthusiast (for some reason it delights me to write that phrase in regards to this video) is wicked awesome. Knoll makes it easy to find out more about him don’tcha know because he posts a handy little map at the ass-end of his tricks edit that indicates he hails from Milwaukee, Wisconsin (did you know that Milwaukee is Algonquin for “the good land”?). From those two factoids, you can find out pretty much anything you want to know. In fact, I’m pretty much a hella good Tim Knoll expert. Ask me anything — even about that mole on his taint.
In the tradition of Dizz, Chad Degroot and Paul Osika (I don’t know who these people are; I’m a Tim Knoll expert not a Chad DeGroot expert), Tim practices freestyle BMX riding — sort of the rampless, trackless style for all you Dave Mirra fans out there. Like a BMX jazz musician, his composition is the street and his notes are the found objects he — and his bike — interact with. You know what? That sounds a little too artsy, but I’m not going to change it.
There has been an emergence of brilliant talent on YouTube lately — with DevinSuperTramp’s channel mysteriously highlighting a lot of them. So expect Tim to get a call from Devin any day now. I get the vibe that Devin is forming up a cadre of superathletes for some sort of next-world intergalactic bullshit. If that’s the case, Tim with his mad trick skillz (yes, with a “z” so you know I’m serious) will clearly be the lion that forms up Voltron’s dick and balls. Mofo’s legit.
Here are some other crazy, awesome athletes:
