Nearly everything looks better in slow motion

Take MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner and a camera that films at 1000 frames per second and something beautiful happens (all courtesy of the good guys at Red Bull):

Here is Darren Berrecloth pulling a 360 whilst sending a step down at the Red Bull Rampage:

Last but not least here is Gee Atherton nailing a huge stepdown gap to wall ride:

Another good example of how Two Wheels are Better.

Some of the best tricks on two wheels

Check out this collection of tricks that require skills most of us can only dream of having:

First up is Mike Spinner's quad whip, where a bike nearly becomes a helicopter:

Next up is Benny Phillip's front flip tailwhip attempt from Crankworx, there are a few BMX guys who can do this but using a mountain bike it looks even more mental.

Here is Special Greg of Nitro Circus fame , his signature 'Special Flip' is something to behold

But remember,  two wheels a day keeps the doctor away.

The least impressive jump on two (square) wheels

Earlier I was day dreaming about a bicycle with square wheels,  as you do.

Then I came across this peach of a clip..

Square wheels + a Honda clunk + too much health & safety = FAIL

" You are such a hero that was amazing"

Er, yeah.. 

Remember, even when your wheels aren't round, two wheels are better.
