No room for error! Mountain biker hurtles down narrow trail above sheer drop in heart-stopping footage
This is the terrifying moment a mountain biker hurtles down a trail in Utah, only inches from a ravine.

At one point on the heart stopping trail, Mr Henrickson was almost 3,000 feet above sea level.

The daredevil faced a track which was only a couple of feet wide at some points, with a substantial drop to his left hand side.
Mr Henrickson, who is an account manager in real life, said he loves finding unknown paths and exploring new places.
He posted the dramatic footage on Instagram where one commentator noticed he performed a ‘manual’, which is where a cyclist raises the front wheel of their bike, but unlike a ‘wheelie’, they are not pumping the pedals.
However, Mr Henrickson admitted he did not want to raise his front wheel so close to the edge of a perilous drop.
The daredevil has posted numerous videos of his adventures on his Instagram page where he has more than 22,000 followers.
