Czech-born artistic cyclist Nicole Frýbortová fell in love with the sport at the age of 7, when she saw a demonstration at a gym. Now, 14 years later, she competes around the world, representing the country of Slovakia. She performs on a fixed-gear bike with no brakes, which gives her the ability to pedal backwards while standing up (after you watch this, try to remember a time when you thought riding no hands was pretty cool? Seems so lame now, right?).
This video was taken at the EMS Cup over the summer, where she placed second. Second! Because apparently there's someone out there even better at riding a bike like a unicycle backwards.
