No kneeslider and open toe shoes? Nicely balanced pose methinks unless that blokes got a kevlar epidermis.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

First photo - he has his left leg off the pedal and you will see the foot... and knee on the ground. No photoshop necessary, just a cheeky 'still' shot.


If you want a mind bending photo - just look how far this bloke is leaned over

Love the track photo - what an amazing moment - hope the rider was ok, he would be 80+ years old today.
