The "rope-a-dope" strategy may not translate to skating, but you certainly have gotta appreciate the persistence here.
This video is called "Matt Lane vs. the Five." The Five appears to be toying with Matt Lane like a father holding a basketball just out of his small son's grasp, but Matt Lane is too determined to give up. The stairs will be conquered. Except that at some point, everyone's gotta give up.
Bad luck, Matty. Here's to next time--it'll be that much sweeter.
