That style of riding is used in "bicycle observed trials" where riders have to negotiate a series of short courses over rocks and walls and all manner of other obstacles. The trick is to do it without putting a foot down ("dabbing"). Each dab adds a point to the score. Lowest score at the end of the day wins.

When I was younger and healed a lot faster than I do now, I used to do the same thing on a purpose-built motorcycle ("observed trial bike").
