Three-Year-Old Displays Impressive Moto Skills

090616top-i

Some of you weren’t impressed by the guy riding his bicycle at 55 mph inches from motorcycles and a big truck, so we thought we’d give it another try with this video of a three-year-old motorcycle rider. An interesting street scene (to say the least) includes this tiny tot slicing through cones and pedestrians while outfitted with a full face helmet and leathers.  All the while, he displays a unique casualness — looking to the side as he rides and even slicing through the cones with one hand on his hip.  Have a look:

    Turns out that he’s actually the same size as all of the other MotoGP riders. 😉

    Quite impressive. My 3 year old grandson rides a Ducati balance bike and has a Yamaha PW 50. Rides the balance bike fine but has trouble with the gas on, gas off, brakes on, brakes off, gas on, on the Yamaha 50. He should get it all down in the next year, he’s getting close.

    Probably still cries less than Lorenzo (I can’t believe that joke went unsaid for this long).

    Looking at this, I realize just how much my parents held me back. I mean, seven seasons racing BMX was great fun as a kid, but once all the guys I raced with moved on to motocross, my parents were aghast at the notion of putting me on something with an engine. Of course, it was the 70’s and bikers were all dirty scoundrels, nonetheless I had no choice but to excel in school and get a job like a normal person. What could have been…

    but wait, like the proverbial “fat lady”, a certain someone has yet to give their final opinion on the subject…

    what impressed me was the kids rig & trailer, and that they make a rear stand that small. now thats impressive!!!

  7. Tank says:

    Indian might have done better hiring this kid to debut the FTR750.

  8. Mick says:

    Finally! Some two stroke coverage.

  9. Dino says:

    Much cooler than an adult going downhill on a bicycle!

    Looks like fun.. I think he was talking about set up changes with the crew at the end..

    Anyone else notice the scuff marks on his elbow pads? I did notice the quick leathers release for a sudden diaper change.

  11. Scott says:

    As a father of two 7-year-olds, I have to say that is freaking amazing!

    Has Red Bull signed this kid yet?

    • PatrickD says:

      How about leaving a child to grow up in society, and enjoy a variety of games and interests? Rather than pushy parents funnelling them into a program that bypasses their formative years, then wondering why someone like Tiger Woods, to name but one, pops out the other end?

      • Jeremy in TX says:

        And many of those “funnel” guys turn out just fine. I wouldn’t mind dealing with some of their problems.

      • Scott says:

        Yes, why tap into a kid’s one-in-a-million talents and see how far he can take them, when you can teach him to be an average Joe like everyone else?

        Good lord.

    Interesting to watch.

    The fab for kids these days is the peddle-less and crank-less push along bikes. Here in Aus I have seen 2 year olds do amazing things on these bikes so this in fact is similar.

    However, where I am impressed with regard to skills – throttle and brake control. That is impressive for a three year old. That requires discipline and control.

    The next Valentino Rossi ?

  14. jim says:

    Not wearing proper boots.

  15. Joe Bogusheimer says:

    Impressive, really. Most kids haven’t even learned how to keep a proper bicycle upright without training wheels (which I consider completely pointless) at that age.

  16. jimmihaffa says:

    Who would expect anything less from a kid named Ruslan Valentinov?

  17. mickey says:

    Kids got some talent. I wondered if he was going to pull a monster energy drink out of the cooler at the end and drink some on camera to get a little cash flow going.

    Kids should be pedaling bicycles, not motorcycling burning up fuel.

    They grow up so fast.
