If it doesn't work all that great at Daytona and Talladega, then you shouldn't do it on the open road.

That...wasn't bump drafting.

If it was, the cyclist would be laying dead on the ground.

So what's that?  55mph?  Pro cyclists often get going that fast going downhill, don't they?  Then again, there isn't a wall of sheet steel a foot in front of them, though.

I have to admit, I've drafted big rigs on my motorcycle before (nothing like that guy is doing), trying to stay warm on really cold mornings.  Yes, stupid of me.

Driver should have gotten in front of the truck and hit the brakes.

  With so much hate and vitriol directed towards cyclists here on fark; I am quite shocked that "Breaking Away", is indeed, not obscure here.

As real as the volvo engined tractor doing donuts without leaving skidmarks...

Another responsible cyclist.

I don't think the word stupid sums up how stupid that is.

I'm not seeing the extreme danger here.

The truck slamming on its brakes isn't going to stop too fast.  Something running into the truck might stop it fast, but if the truck wasn't there... well better the truck than the cyclist.

I'd be more worried about the car behind me than the very heavy truck in front of me.
