Cody Robinson and Riley Nikic give cycling a whole new level of thrill. They have turned their bikes into flying machines and are hoping to gain the support of the community to help them win a cash prize of $25

Princeton has never had a shortage of thrill seekers.  Cody Robinson and Riley Nikic are just part of the ongoing tradition.  Their latest stunt has grabbed the attention of TSN and Advil and now their video footage has garnered them a spot as a finalist in the “Advil Highlight of the Month” contest.

Robinson and Nikic pedal their bikes up two side-by-side ramps at Allison Lake and do a synchronized somersault jump into the water.  Their flip is high, fast and totally thrilling as the two launch themselves skyward.  The two spin through the air together in a dangerous harmony that makes viewers hold their breath until they hit safety with a splash.

Their stunt is exactly the kind of thing that brought them to the finals.  Robinson and Nikic are vying for top spot and a cash prize of $25,000 against some other amazing athletes.  They are one of ten finalists.  They are wedged between two basketball clips, two ski tricks,  a wake board flip, a football hurdle, an extreme hockey goal, a karate expert and a ninja.

Anyone voting for Robinson and Nikic has a chance to win $5000 themselves.  Voters can vote as often as they want and the ten finalists are worth the viewing.  From midnight on Monday Oct. 31 until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday Nov. 27, 2011, these local tricksters will be counting on Princeton to put them into the top spot.

Voting is only open to Canadian residents who have reached the legal voting age in their province or territory.  Supporters can vote as many times as they want each day, but only one vote per day will be entered into the $5000 random prize draw available to voters.
