A breathtaking video showing Dutch trials ace Rick Koekoek climbing the Stairway to Heaven on bike


Rick Koekoek - Up

Rick Koekoek may not be a househould name like Danny McAskill, but if he keeps producing videos like this one, that will be changing soon. Koekoek hails from the Netherlands and he is one of the UCI’s top 3 mountain bike trials riders in the world. He is also the current Guinness World Record holder for “highest bunny hop over a bar”.

In this simple, yet stunning video, Koekoek shows supreme bike control while climbing the world famous Stairway to Heaven in Montserrat, Spain (located about 30 miles west of Barcelona). Throughout the video, different motivational speakers provide words of guidance and encouragement. You will hear the voices of Tony Robbins, Eric Thomas, Robin Sharma, Mel Robbins and Jim Rohn providing context for Koekoek’s amazing feat.

The amount of skill, control and composure in this stunt is simply jaw-dropping. The setup of the trick is basic, the execution is extreme. Don’t even think about letting the penalty for failure cross your mind.

Even if you aren’t afraid of heights, the view is simply breathtaking. The valley sits 4,055 feet below the mountain peak and Montserrat has the nickname of “the closest place to heaven on Earth.” True.
