    these arent exactly WIERD things 😔

  2. Stacy Siivonen on February 22, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Oh, this is why female cyclists are slower.

  3. Michael Howell on February 22, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Does it not hurt your lower back being bent in such an unnatural way. Wouldn’t it be more comfortable with a straight back.

  4. E 90 on February 22, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    One small shift in the gravel and both you and that bike are going to be setting a new PR on a descent, mate.

  5. Minerva Li on February 22, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    0:48 what about women athletes? How do they "relieve themself"?

  6. Philip Cooper on February 22, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    What if I need to go the number two?

  7. lennyakerlund on February 22, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    And when they have to shit rhe just take a dump in their hand maybe save it for later idk

  8. MaxGaming on February 22, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Don’t do this at home but you can do this at the road 👍👍

  9. Cal Goman on February 22, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    The most insane thing I did was do a lazy boy on my downhill mtb

  10. Tgf R shit on February 22, 2021 at 9:15 pm

  11. David Scivour on February 22, 2021 at 9:19 pm

  12. lastpme on February 22, 2021 at 9:19 pm

  13. DeadOnABed on February 22, 2021 at 9:19 pm

  14. Wolgrave on February 22, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    very weird indeed

  15. Appeltje Anouk on February 22, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    How do the women relieve themselves in a race?

  16. Cardinal Kyle on February 22, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    hard to try them at home when cycling is an outside sport

  17. Jayden Keevil on February 22, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    i cant even put my backpack on while riding!

  18. desideratum07 on February 22, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    ….for the "wee assist", the hand on riders backside can throw his balance off, if you hit a bump, gravel, etc…. REAL pros know that a hand on seat or seatpost is safer, because the forward force goes directly through the bike. Either way, you must BOTH practice TOGETHER, BEFORE the race…. Otherwise, you could BOTH crash & DNF…..

  19. Max Östling on February 22, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Go buy a mtb

  20. Brandon Wong on February 22, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Sometimes I inflate/deflate my tyres to road conditions on the move.

  21. Jamie Sessford on February 22, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Van got a wheel bearing on the way out?

  22. gimmeagig on February 22, 2021 at 9:30 pm

  32. livin' in chains on February 22, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Yesterday I tried the sitting on top tube thing on a decent… and I can say… It is very dangerous and looks a lot easier than it is.

  33. - Sempra - on February 22, 2021 at 9:48 pm

  34. Ricardo Ramirez on February 22, 2021 at 9:49 pm

  35. Eitan Frankowitz on February 22, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Is the new Cannondale SuperSix Evo a good bike (the base model but with disc brakes at 2750 USD) for a 15-year-old who is trying to get into the world of road bike racing?

  36. Mi Ka on February 22, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    Somebody say’s French is the most beautiful language. But this British English sounds likes music to me.
    It is one of the main reason to watch your videos ✌️ greetings from the Krauts
