Two BMX riders bombed down the sloped side of a Rotterdam skyscraper for this video that’s surprisingly not preceded by the words, “Don’t try this at home.” After playing around in the dark on their glowing bikes, Mark Vos and Boy Janssen head for the roof of the Willemswerf building and drop down the steep […]
