Ride on a bridge - level 2

Ride on a bridge - level 2

22-01-2014 14:00

There is a new bridge in Texas. It has only just opened, but it already made the news thanks to a video released this week.

It shows a BMX rider performing an amazing stunt. The professional rider rode over the arches of the bridge on his BMX bike. His performance was captured by some cameramen as well as by a camera which was on his helmet.

People who saw the stunt live must have been pretty surprised!

Difficult words: BMX (strong and small bicycle for doing special movements), stunt (dangerous action), arch (upper part of the bridge).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
