Look Ma, No Hands

Caught this clip on another blog that I follow, Italian Cycling Journal. Ciuliano Calore descending the 48 switchbacks of the Passo dello Stelvio in Italy circa 1986 - riding no handed. I have no idea who Ciuliano Calore is or where the Passo dello Stevlio is located. Doesn't matter, anything that sounds Italian is cool in my book.

I get a kick out of the sheer goof factor of this stunt, complete with heel on rear tire for braking. Then add in the traffic, blaring horns and running Italian commentary in the background - which I don't understand a word of - but of course, sounds great - 'cause it's Italian.

Witness for yourself.....


  1. Okay, now let's see him go *up* that road no hands.

  2. Different climb, but he's got that covered as well. No hands or handlebars needed:
