Bike hurtles down dam in death-defying stunt in Slovenia

Video of a mountain biker taking part in a death-defying stunt in Slovenia has clocked up 4.4 million hits since it was posted earlier this month.

Primoz Ravnik hurtled down a 60m (197 feet) high dam in Zirovnica on 28 August, and survived to tell the tale.

Mr Ravnik learned to ride a bike when he was just two, and is now a cross-country and downhill biker.
