check this story out:

"Giuliano Calore, a cyclist who defies categorization. The exploits of this musician and champion of acrobatic cycling from Padua have earned him the title "Cyclist of the Impossible." For example?
- in 1981 he climbed and descended the Stelvio Pass while playing, in turn, four different musical instruments, including an amplified accordion.
- his most famous feat was his 1985 descent of the 48 hairpins of the Stelvio Pass on a bike with no handlebars or brakes! His time was just over 27 min., averaging 80 km/h.
-in 1986 he climbed the Stelvio when it was 10 degrees below zero (centigrade) and covered with snow--in 2 hours and 20 min.
- in 1989 he climbed the Stelvio on a bike without handlebars or brakes in 1 hour and 17 minutes.
His latest dream is to descend the Stelvio on a moonless night, guided by a laser beam!"

I want to see him do that on a unicycle. (A bike with no handlebars, no brakes, and only one wheel...)
