Remember one of the most famous photos at a TdF finish?

Well, I got to see Fumi perform it in person today.... :D

Gives a new meaning to stress testing. Maybe TOUR magazine should adopt this test protocol in the future? BTW, that's Robbie McEwen and World U23 TT Champion Luke Durbridge in the background.

Robbie just won the Singapore OCBC Criterium the night before. Fumi is doing the wheelie to celebrate the win!

Sagan upped the ante last year. No handed wheelies on Angrilu

Wow. Sagan did it in the middle of a race? He must be enjoying the Angrilu climb.

Just to clarify - Fumi was doing a wheelie and bunny hopping with normal shoes (you can see the rear tire off the ground in the first two photos) - that's why his hands are on the bars.

Sagan = WOW!

Peter Sagan's hands straight out from each shoulder just oozes "come at me" value.
