Italian pro Niccolo Bonifazio shows off his bike-handling skills (video)

Cycling brothers Niccolo and Leonardo Bonifazio have a bit of fun on their road bikes with downhill racer Wyn Masters

Trek-Segafredo pro Niccolo Bonifazio has shown off his bike-handling skills in a video posted on Facebook.

Bonifazio joined his brother Leonardo and GT Factory downhill racer Wyn Masters in the video. Bonifazio is evidently a highly adept bike handler, performing wheelies and rolling endos on a steep hill in his native Italy alongside Masters.

If that wasn't enough, Bonifazio and Masters then roll along by the seaside, pulling one-handed wheelies side-by-side.

Niccolo Bonifazio has been signed up by the new Bahrain-Merida team for 2017. This season, the 22-year-old won a stage of the Tour of Poland and placed third in the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race.

In the spring, he rode to fifth in the Scheldeprijs and sixth in Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne.

Niccolo Bonifazio started his professional career in 2014 with the Lampre-Merida team before riding for one season with Trek-Segafredo.

At the time of writing, the Bonifazio video had been viewed over 65,000 times.
