Love the lack of helmet.

In yosemite I once saw a dude riding a fixie behind a tourbus. Not going nearly as fast, but it looked like a hell of a lot of fun.

Best I've managed is 60km/h behind lorries in Japan on my commute. If it's a road you ride a lot it's easy to predict places they will brake and take caution accordingly. I rode more towards the edge though, just in case he pulls an emergency brake. That guy has some big balls for riding in the middle like that - I'm surprised he has the gears to keep up (at 52-11 he needs nearly 150 RPM to do 90km/h).

Hes trying to re-enact the truck scene in Breaking away? :lol:


Actually when you are behind a semi that big and that close the envelope that forms around you pushes you along and there is not air resitance


but as soon any you get out that envelope you can't get back on.
