Cyclist Rides Down Wet Mountain Road At 50 Mph... Backwards

Eskil Ronningsbakken rides his bicycle backwards - sitting on the handlebars - down the 10% incline of Trollstigen in Norway.
Note: The speed was a maximum of 50 mph (80 km/h), slower of course when he was going around the tight curvese where he had to use the brakes.  Parts of the video are filmed with a helmet cam of another rider.   Trollstigen (English: Trolls' Path) is a serpentine mountain road in Norway and a popular tourist attraction due to its steep incline of 10% and eleven hairpin bends.  The pass has an elevation of approximately 850 metres (2,790 ft).   Music: "Elements" by Lindsey Sterling.
