HE IMITATES REVVING
-What Barney's trying to say is,
"We'll be doing that!"
We're taking on Oset bikes -
electrically-powered bikes that can go pretty much anywhere.
We've come to a course in Yorkshire where young riders test their skills
to see how we compare.
It's time to meet our coach, Dan.
Dan, it is a pleasure to meet you.
Never mind the interview, I want one.
-Barney is very excited about this.
-Hi, Dan, how you doing?
Hi, Barney. Pleased to meet you.
I ride a bike, but it's a very different bike to this.
What are the differences between mine and this one?
-There's no seat - you stand on the foot pegs.
The throttle is on your right-hand.
So, the throttle, is that the, "Vroom!"?
-Not on these.
-There's no "vroom", is there?
-No. Completely silent.
-Of course not.
-Because it's battery-powered.
Dan, should we get a book out and find out all about...
Radzi, you're a good friend...pipe down.
There's a ton of bikes, let's make this film happen.
Here we go!
And we're off. Well, one of us is anyway.
Don't forget this is my very first time riding a powered bike
and, believe me, it's not as easy as Barney's making this look.
Look at him - he loves the speed.
I'm scared of the speed...
-And that needs to change.
-Come on, Radz.
I am definitely getting the electric bike bug, and I'm not the only one.
These young riders love it, too.
'Oh, they're really fun.'
You can play about on it all day and the batteries last long.
Barney just did a wheelie.
'I was really excited,'
like, "I want to have a go, I want to have a go."
You can really play around any time you want, anywhere,
and you get no noise complaints from any neighbours or anything.
Already, training's over,
and now we face three big challenges that will test our biking skills.
But before we get stuck in,
we need some final advice from top young rider Ollie.
You need to understand that you can't put your foot down,
cos if you do, every time you touch the ground,
it's a penalty towards the ultimate score.
So you want to be sharp on your breaks and have good balance.
Barn, I'm not ticking many of those boxes.
I think if you believe in yourself, you can do this.
Do you know what? Bring on the challenge!
He's got no chance.
Time for our first big test...
It's a steep descent down a muddy track and up the other side.
This one is all about brakes and power.
-And I'm up first.
Let's have a go here, Radz - let's see what happens.
Back brake on, stick to the line...
Here we go, now the middle bit. Bit of power! Ya-hey!
Stage one complete.
It's now the turn of Chinyanganya. He is nervous.
It doesn't look that steep on camera,
but it's a lot steeper as I'm going down.
Keep the speed, don't fall off. Keep going...
HE STRAINS Yes!
Mate, well done.
So, we've both nailed that one. It's on to challenge two...
We have to ride up a rocky path to the top of a field
and back down the other side.
That may SOUND easy, but remember -
we have to do a complete run without putting a single foot down.
And this time I'm up first.
'And I quickly realise this section is a lot tougher than the last.'
That's not the track!
'It's so rocky and no matter what I do, I just can't get my bike going.'
My challenge has changed.
It's, "Can I push this bike around?"
'This stage has clearly beaten me.
'But I really want to try and just complete it.'
That was too tough.
That was too... I tried my best,
but I've met my match.
'It's clear that no matter how hard I try,
'I'm never going to be able to get around
'this section without touching the ground...'
but can Barney?
'I soon see why Radzi was struggling.
'This is really tough.'
'No matter how many attempts it takes...'
Come on, mate. This is the one!
'..I'm determined to do a complete run without touching the ground.'
Go on, Barn.
Go on, Barn!
'Hey, hey! At last, I've done it!
Only the final challenge is left...
OK, the name needs a bit of work, but this is tricky.
You have to ride through water
and make it over a large rock and on to a raised section,
all without touching the ground.
Although I gave it my best on challenge two, I failed,
so this one would definitely beat me.
Over to you, Barney.
'But you know what they say - "If at first you don't succeed...
' "..try again." And, yes - he does it.'
That is the most fun I've ever had.
Not just the fun of the sport - this brand-new sport -
but look at the future champions. It was absolutely amazing.
Thank you for helping us with your top tips.
One thing before we go, though, erm...
do we get to keep the bikes?
