Professional cyclings have enviable bike handling skills, but Cannondale‘s Lawson Craddock took it a step further by lobbing a sweet in his mouth while riding along no-handed.
Personally, I can’t do the Malteser trick while sitting completely stationary on my sofa, let alone while riding a bike. Truth be told, I’m not that good at riding no-handed either!
So the fact that Craddock can ride without hands while looking straight up in the air is pretty impressive to me, but not something I’d recommend trying on the notoriously potholed roads in Britain.
It is good to see that he was wearing adequate eye protection for his trick, though, with his oversized POC sunglasses an adequate replacement for the safety goggles that I assume everyone else wears when trying this…
