German Cyclists Are Terrifyingly Talented

When I first managed to not crash while biking with no hands I was pretty convinced I was the shit. Then I crashed. Clearly, in Germany people learn to ride with no hands before they learn how to walk, which is how they can do the ridiculous things you’re about to witness by the time they’re teenagers. These two young German women won the 2009 European Junior Indoor Cycling Championships, a competition whose title is very misleading because it’s more like figure skating than any biking event I’ve ever seen. Don’t try this at home (or anywhere for that matter).
