Adam Hansen going down

By Susan Westemeyer

Adam Hansen (Team Columbia) is taking his off-season training to new heights, so to speak. The Australian decided to go bungee jumping and ended up going off the roof with a bike.

"I have jumped a few times since I was 17, and I was there and saw the bike while I was on top about to do a normal jump," he told Cyclingnews. "I thought it would be pretty good to ride off the roof with the bike."

The 27-year-old called it "pretty groovy" and "lots of fun".
