Orica-GreenEdge get hypnotised (video)

Riders from Orica-GreenEdge succumb (or not) to the hypnotic powers of Isaac Lomman

Members of the Orica-GreenEdge WorldTour team took part in a mass hypnotism with Australian stage hypnotist and comedian Isaac Lomman, and filmed the consequences as part of its Backstage Pass series.

Some of the team's riders appeared to be more susceptible to Lomman's hypnotic charms than others - Mat Hayman managed to resist 'going under', but Luke Durbridge was one of the first to fall asleep.

Hypnotised members of the team are then put through various tasks, much to the hilarity of their fellow team-mates not on stage. We'll have to wait until the 2015 season kicks off to see if Lomman has hypnotised the squad into a race-winning state.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
