The highlight of the recent Multnomah County Bike Fair (MCBF) were the jousting competitions. This year they even had a few unicycle jousters.

In case you missed it (or if you didn’t get enough of it) I present a few video clips from the day’s action…

Instead of the same old baseball and football coverage, our local FOX-TV station decided to “go inside the strange and unusual world of bike jousting,” for their Oregon Sports Spotlight segment.

Thanks to the tech-savvy Dat Nguyen, the segment is available in QuickTime format for our viewing pleasure.

Don’t miss Corey’s quote towards the end,

“You get hurt but glory is forever…I’ll take some broken bones if I get some glory on the battlefield.”

If you’re curious about unicycle jousting, Michael “MJFreshyFresh” Jones put together this cool little video.

And don’t miss Nerf’s cool bit of “Bike jousting cam” footage.

Someday I’d like to try jousting. I’ve ridden a really tall tall-bike and it was fun…it’s just the falling part I need to get comfortable with ;-).
