Caleb Smith (Bartonville, Ill.) has a knack for drawing crowds. His stunt during a recent session attracted four motorcyclists, three frat boys and two college girls, all of whom watched Caleb attempt a gnarly roof roll. Nobody thought Caleb was actually going to try this insane idea, but we were wrong.

Although Caleb did not land the stunt, he received some consolation from a nearby coed who watched his attempt and fall.

Caleb got all of the props for the day for even trying such a disastrous maneuver, while his knees paid the price.
