This is not cool. Have you ever been amazing at something the first couple times you tried it? No. Huge props to these unicyclists for having the courage and dedication to learn--which, yes, usually involves bails and fails. A lot of these tricks take a lot of practice, and it's a shame that National Geographic isn't showcasing such a unique and awesome sport in the light it deserves. I'm so disappointed in NatGeo for spending their time and energy on ripping a sport down.

As a unicycist myself I'm a little mad at this. take any extreme sport and people will bail and get hurt. statistically unicycling is safer than skate boarding and bmx. also every trick you saw someone mess up in this video has been landed many times before. O and the guy in the beginning that fell as he got on; he fell because he probably thought he could do it without any instruction and did it wrong. learning the basics of unicycling is very safe and easy if you have a little help.

 This clip is so stupid and misleading. How about you show the successful videos to show what can be done. Sports where you are trying to push what can be done on something will always involve bails, but they can look fantastic.
