Bike Jousting

This weekend was Pedalpalooza here in Portland. They have all kinds of biking events, but one of the more unique is the bike jousting. Two people ride at eachother at top speed and try to knock each other off bikes. It's much more dangerous than it sounds....especially when there are no pads involved. It usually only lasts 1 round, but these two guys on their tall bikes were pros!

You can tell how good the bikers are going to be by their outfit.

Here's a video of how one finally got the other off!
