One of our favorit tricks! Sakis Doumas and what he calls The Easy Rider. The photo was taken a few days ago in Athens, Greece by Rodposse Photography. Check out Sakis' Facebook page for more photos and videos of him ...

Morinaga Tomokazu has been doing the same trick for some years but grabs the peg instead of the wheel.

Well the peg grab is a terry adams trick,at least i saw him doing it at infinite pieces first time,then i learned it also.
Morich is going in opposite circles and grabbing the peg.Sick trick how he is doing it.
I can also grab it on the peg and g-turn for 10 or more years but this is also different as the bike is on the side.
different grab is totally different standing position,its not the same. Except if a stemlash is the same to whiplash.then yes its the same trick.
