Stunt bike rider Jeff Lenosky spends as much time in the air as he does on the ground. A world-class professional competitive free rider and trail mountain bike rider, Lenosky will be performing some of his jaw-dropping stunts this Sunday, June 12 at Outdoor Sports Center in Wilton.
General manager Scott Maxwell is "psyched" about Jeff's appearance, his sixth in as many years. "Jeff's an incredible rider and athlete," he says. "And we love hosting this event. It's like throwing a big neighborhood party and it promotes the sport of cycling," a sport Jeff clearly has taken to a higher level, if you will.
The free event takes place at noon and 3 p.m. in the parking lot behind Outdoor Sports Center, 80 Danbury Road, Wilton. Ice cream will be served to bike enthusiasts young and old.
At last year's event, Lenosky demonstrated his record-holding feat, the "bunny hop," a trick that involves jumping a bike vertically from a dead stop over an obstacle. Think it's easy? Think again. It's kind of like heaving your old Schwinn (while sitting on it) over a castle wall without a running start. Granted Jeff doesn't ride an old Schwinn and a six-foot tall person is no castle wall, but you get the idea. Must we remind you not to try this at home?
