BMX Rider Pulls Off Wheelie Cool Bridge Stunt

A stunt rider has astonished onlookers by riding his bicycle over the top of a newly built bridge in Fort Worth, Texas.

In a video released to the media, Mat Olson can be seen riding his BMX bike along the 24ft high arches of the Seventh Street Bridge while being filmed by a camera crew.

Mr Olson manages to get from one end of the bridge to another without disaster.

Police who saw the stunt said Mr Olson could have been arrested, but added they were thankful he was not hurt and let him off with a warning.

"It seemed like I was on top of a mountain," Olson told the Star Telegram. "It was all windy and crazy when I was up there. It was pretty exhilarating, that's for sure."
