Trike Drifting: A New Life for Big Wheels (VIDEO)

 Welcome to the Morning Buzz, a catch-up on interesting happenings around the city and country and a quick guide to what (and who) to keep your eyes on. We'll be here, first thing every weekday, to get you going. Here's what's buzzing this morning: 

Buckle up: The group of 30-somethings from New Zealand who brought us the epic rope swing is back -- on three wheels. 

"Trike drifting" is the Kiwi term for real-life MarioKart shooting down a hill on three wheels (the back two are custom, no grip wheels that allow for sliding) -- all while being filmed for instant internet fame. 

All footage was captured by Devin Graham using a Glidecam HD 2000. Check out the video after the jump ...
