This paragliding MTB video is trippy as hell

Watch the ultimate uplift in action

Flying is cool, MTBs are cool. Flying MTBs are positively Arctic

You know that feeling when everything comes together and you're just flying on the bike? When the flow takes you and it's like the rules of physics don't quite apply? 

This utterly mad video takes that sensation to the next level as French rider Kilian Bron hitches a rider with his paragliding friend Eliot Nochez, soaring above snow-covered slopes and pulling a cheeky touch-and-go on the roof of a chairlift terminal.

Slipping the surly bonds of Earth on a bicycle looks at once incredibly dangerous and enormously entertaining. Do you fancy a go?
