With the road cycling season just around the corner, many of us are starting to spend more and more time each day thinking about all things related to our favourite pass-time.
The following video will demonstrate some of the amazing things that can be done with a road bike in the right hands. These are tricks that most of us should never think about attempting. The bike used is a Pinarello Dogma 2.
