Yes, it's definitely not the road riding we talk about on this forum. I posted it partly to show that cycling as a sport has some facets people may not be aware of. When I grew up in Germany, indoor cycling was really big with the kids and enthusiastically supported by their parents. Apparently, it lives on.

Never caught on in the U.S. as far as I know. Looks too wimpy, perhaps. It's not--it takes great strength to do a handstand on the bars, believe me.

I could definitely see this growing, maybe even becoming an Olympic event. It's certainly better than some of the silly events like rhythmic gymnastics or synchronized swimming.

I went out for this when I was about 12 tears old on the urging of my gym teacher. The try-out lasted about one minute and was, as they say today, an epic fail.
