Seriously, do not try this at home. Norwegian daredevil Eskil Ronningsbakken shows us just how talented a bike rider he is as he takes on an 850m-mountain road. Winding around the hairpin turns and getting frighteningly close to the edge, Ronningsbakken completes the 4.5km stretch in under 3 minutes, while reaching top speeds of 50mph. Oh yeah, and he’s cycling backwards!

Eskil is also famous for his other death-defying feats, such as performing balancing acts on top of high canyons and cliffs. So really, cycling backwards down a steep mountain is just a walk in the park for him.
