Something Different...Voodoo Unicycles: Highland Tour
Unicycles...mentalists...Scotland...beautifully shot...different, but kind of impressive too...
Yes this one is a little different to the usual vids you'd find on Dirt, but hey can't we all appreciate something a bit different from time to time? This video is beautifully shot in a stunning location, and no matter what you think of unicycling these guys clearly have some serious skills...and little concern for their baby making equipment. Enjoy...
Earlier this year we went on roadtrip around the Scottish Highlands with Voodoo Unicycles. It was an amazing week with the guys riding a variety of terrains, tackling different objects all with a breathtaking backdrop - The Highlands!
The sport is as far from the stereotype of circus or street performance as you can imagine. Like all urban sports, it’s a matter of being creative and utilising objects designed for a completely different purpose.
This event was organised by Voodoo Unicycles, the UK’s only Extreme Unicycling display team. The team was founded by Jason Auld and Edd Hawkes in an attempt to promote the fledgling sport to a mainstream audience. So far the team have performed across the globe at events as high profile as the Formula One Grand Prix and the recent Paralympic games in London. Trips like this one are all part of the teams goal to provide a brighter future for a sport that rarely gets the attention and credit it deserves.

Thank you to everyone that helped make this project possible!!
Riders - Jason Auld, Edd Hawkes, Mike Taylor and Alfred Hawkes
