THIS Is What We Call Extreme Biking (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Two wheels, one sharp turn.

Matt Hunter, a professional mountain biker, seemingly defies physics in a video showing him biking swiftly around a bend, his body nearly parallel to the ground.

If you look closely at the video, which was posted May 6 on YouTube, Hunter's forearm even grazes the dirt.

Hunter, who's currently sponsored by racing team Specialized Biking, hails from British Columbia and says he's been racing competitively since he was 12 years old. It's obvious from the video above that he thrives on pushing his rides to the extreme.

"I really enjoy finding adventure in the mountains -- whether it be challenging moves and airs or maybe it's a multiple day ride," Hunter says in his racing team bio. "I like watching big mountain skiers and snowboarders, the way they shred the mountains in the snow inspires me on dirt. Besides riding, I surf, fish, and backcountry ski as much as I can."

In case you needed some more footage of Hunter in action, here's a video of him biking in Afghanistan earlier this year:
