Video: Who Dhers Wins - Venezuelan BMX ace Daniel Dhers does stunts on back of truck

Multiple X Games champion finds one way of passing time while stuck in slow-moving traffic in Peruvian capital Lima

Venezuelan BMX freestyle rider Daniel Dehrs, winner of five gold medal at the Summer X Games, has found one way of using traffic jams in Peru's capital, Lima, to his advantage - by leaping onto the back of a truck and running through his repertoire of tricks, including while it was moving, albeit slowly, in the gridlock.

Okay, it's not any old truck - the flatbed trailer houses ramps bearing the logo of his sponsor, Red Bull, which produced the video below - but the stunt certainly grabbed the attention of passers-by and vehicle occupants alike.

Imagine that in London, Traffic cops would have had him for riding dangerously, due care and attention and more importantly the driver of the truck for not having sufficient safety mirrors, carrying an unsteady load.
But he is a talented fellow isn't he!!
