Been looking for this one for some time, photo credits go to Purito, Oscar Periero doing the stunt, another from 2009 while training at Liege:

I am sure a lot DS's would be horrified to see there riders doing stunts like those, imagine if a rider crashed doing something like that.

Sagen easily the best, but Kessiakoff is not bad either. Cancallera used to be top notch, but perhaps a little fear has crept into the man's mind.

Sometimes it does not take a lot to break a bone, just the right angle and it is gone.

Sagan is good at BMX style tricks yes but I reckon Thor Hushovd on fast descents beats that. Cancellara clearly also top notch when its fast.

Well how about this more current rider, what would his DS say?



Even off the bike they seem to be doing a lot of nonsense
