There’s nothing worse than a distraction in the middle of the road getting in the way of your cycling; a poorly constructed cycle lane, some angry drivers on the way to work, the fact that Justin Bieber doesn’t look both ways before crossing the road. You know how it is.
Wait. What do you mean?
That’s right, American-based cycling team Axeon Hagens Berman were out on a training ride in California last week when the man much of the universe loves to hate – at least, err, until they heard his latest album – jumped out on the road and reportedly almost caused the whole team to crash.
The near miss with the Canadian pop sensation took place on the Pacific Coast highway in Malibu, with the 16-rider team travelling at around 40 km/h when Bieber walked out into the middle of the road.
