Agreed.
The truck almost jack knifed while trying to avoid the rider.
Sometimes drivers are attentive.

Argh. WTF!? You should never never ever attempt this out of a race imho. It's simply weary of live!!! There also ain't no need to do it as a cyclotourist imho except for showboating around.

Agreed. All the video needed was another rider going past him spinning the small chainring.

Luckily nobody was on the opposite side of the road

knobheads will be knobheads I guess, just very glad no-one got seriously injured. I see some people doing things like this on club rides every now and then, I tend to avoid them.
