Footage of New Zealand mountain biker pulling a wheelie and hitting Baldwin Street in Dunedin, the world steepest street has surfaced online.

The video shows 29 year old Wyn Masters from Taranaki bomb this insanely steep road, reaching speeds up to 80km/h, all on one wheel instead of two.

Wyn said he did the stunt as part of his Wheelie Wednesday video series.

"I was in Dunedin for a competition and thought it could be a bit of a laugh," he says.

Masters has just returned from Australia where he competed in the Oceania champs and placed third. He is currently based in Rotorua training for Cranxworks biking competition before heading back to Europe for more races.
