I like how the other rider is struggling to make it up the same hill.

I don't know if it's the same guy, but there is on crazy italian that has done Stelvio & co. no-handed, IIRC he also did the Stelvio up and down while playing two or three instruments. :lol:

He wrote a book and he has a website with a list of its performances, but I can't remember his name.

I used to be able to hold a decent wheelie on my mtb, but i tried it on a road bike and it's just not the same. How do you do it, especially with no hands?!

Impressive.

Other than the h/b's floating round....it should be like riding a unicycle....shouldn't it? (all be it, a VERY expensive unicycle!!!!)
Hmmmmm....I can ride a unicycle (badly)....why can't I wheelie.....even WITH hands????
Updated: Racing again! Thought this was unlikely! Eventually, I may even have a decent race!
Edit: 2015: darn near won the best South Island series (got second in age
-group)..woo hoo Racy Theremery is back!!
