Ride on a bridge - level 3

Ride on a bridge - level 3

22-01-2014 14:00

The Seventh Street Bridge in Fort Worth, Texas, has only just opened, but it’s already made the news. In a video released this week, stunt rider Mat Olsen can be seen performing an incredible feat on the arches of the bridge.

Olsen is a professional rider for DecoBMX. He performed the stunt on Saturday, for just a camera crew and a few surprised bystanders, who happened to be there.

Olsen also wore a camera mounted on his helmet, as he soared over the graceful arches.

Difficult words: stunt (dangerous action), feat (impressive achievement), mounted (fixed firmly to a larger thing), soar (go up), graceful (elegant).
