Extreme free riding on the streets of Rio de Janeiro

(CBS News) This wind whipping through your hair, a cool breeze on your cheek, the city completely flying by you... no, I'm not talking about driving around town in a convertible. I'm speaking about something a whole lot more extreme: free riding!

Perhaps I should have mentioned something about going over rooftops and ledges to make it more clear? The heart-pounding video was put out by Red Bull and has French moto trial athlete Julien Dupont displaying his amazing skills as he rides and jumps over the walls and alleys of Rio de Janeiro. Honestly, there's no need for a cup of coffee to wake you up when you've got videos like this.  So what did you all think?  Feel free to leave me some of your thoughts below.
