This is the unnamed winner of the third round of the 2013 Dunlop Autoby Cup Motorcycle Gymkhana, and the video of their run is mind-boggling for two different reasons. First, the motorcycle control on display here is extremely impressive, with excellent precision throughout.

Secondly, the videography is great. The rider attached a counterbalanced rotary video rig to the top of his helmet, allowing a free-spinning, constantly changing point of view, that the title of the video calls "Fairy View." We call it "Trippy View." Either way, it looks outstanding, and is a far cry from the dime-a-dozen GoPro videos that can be found all over the internet. Now, if we could just figure out how to adapt one of these for a car. Take a look at the full video below, and just try to keep your head on straight.

      As an avid autocrosser for many years, I am very interested in doing this type of thing on my bike. Is there a scene for this in FL? Nice video, and yeh, that guy can ride.

      would love to see a split screen showing the track and where he is on it for comparison, made me dizzy.

      Why does it sound like a plastic recycle bin is being tossed down the stairs during GoPro videos?

        Crappy mic with heavy compression plus loose mounts equals godawful rattling sound way louder than it should ever be. Microphones don't like to be touched!

          That noise ruined the whole video for me.

      Made me dizzy. A lot of skill, though.

      Looks like no one needs Lakitu anymore..... This type of filming used to be his specialty.

      I've only just started Moto Gymkhana and I'm hooked already. The new season starts soon and I can't wait. Unlike racing you can take part in competition straight away using more or less any bike, no specialised equipment needed, going to be a great year for me.
