There is a reality TV show in its first season here in NZ called “Dare to win”, which the fifth episode featured a unicycle challenge where the contestants were to learn to ride a unicycle… Here is the intro to the segment, where I am seen proudly sporting my unicycle.com (NZ) t-shirt.
I would upload the entire segment, however I am holding off as even this small part is surely considered to be copyrite infringement.
I haven’t heard of that show. But I’ve showed people all those tricks except the double flip and never got a reaction like that lol. So how did you end up on the show? It’s pretty awesome that you were unicycling on national TV. Should ask TVNZ to put you on the news or something lol.
I’ll watch the full show next month when I’m back on full speed internet to see how the contestants did. Learning to ride in a week isn’t hard but learning to turn around cones would be.
He won a variety of prizes valued at $10,000 for himself and his three friends.
When we set the challenge I really doubted that they would do it.
He said he rode about 3-4 hours a day for the 7 days, and really proved that unicycling is a possible feat.
They can also be seen free mounting during the segment which was cool considering they had no help training (that I know of).
Yeah, bucket head guy was an epic fail.
Marky Mark and Pauly Paul are wicked tho, definately friends of the unicycle community, and kind enough to provide practice space for the Auckland unicycling, juggling and circus arts community!
