A Norwegian daredevil, Eskil Ronningsbakken is known for some pretty crazy stunts. From death-defying one-armed handstands atop massive cliffs to performing aerial acrobatics hanging high int he air underneath a hot-air balloon, he takes his art to the edge.

One of his latest stunts has Eskil blazing down a mountain pass with wet roads at 50mph. Not much of a challenge you might think until you see that he is riding the bike backwards on the handlebars. The road is a steep, twisting decent down Trollstigen Mountain in Norway.

Here is a YouTube video of his ride
