The rider is insane doing that . He fully knows that he can be bumped away when suddenly he stopped and the car didn't immediately .

Yeah that's correct, anyway like what Toni mention it is a trick to gain speed.. Well good for the guy that he's not injured, and sad for the car driver because there's scratch on his bumper

No d. It's not risky at all. If you know professional cyclers and cycling enthusiast there's no danger in that at all. Only stupid bikers would risk it but when we follow cars it's for the purpose of speeding up and resting at the same time.

You aren't a biker at all lol! Bikers usually stay close to the car so they could gain speed. The car ahead of them usually sucks them up making it easier for them to gain speed as well. It's a trick, we bikers do and we know exactly when to stop when we have to in order to avoid accidents.

@tech40 professional bikers don't do that. We don't even want scratches in our one bikes coz my bike costs as much as one car

That's the danger of coming in too close to the vehicle in front, so dangerous when it suddenly tops without warning.
