I’ve never really considered the aerodynamics of cycling and how changing position might positively affect your speed, but this video really lays it out all on the line.

In the video, some cyclist dude is competing in a fixed gear race where he decides to hit a full superman pose on a straight and absolutely glides past his opponents like its nothing thanks to his improved streamlining. Nicely done sir:
Wow. The best part of the video has to be at the end when the pedals are spinning really fast and he can’t fuck up putting his feet back on them otherwise he’ll crash the bike so he does a little air pedal first to get back into the groove of it. Absolute legend.
For more crazy cycling videos, check out this ostrich chasing a bunch of cyclists in South Africa. Terrifying.
