Doing it for the fans

Cycle-ball. This is actually a thing.

A lot of the weird things in this world happen in Europe. Cycle ball reminds us of that. Originally started in Germany back in 1893, the sport has hosted World Championships since 1929. Clearly it has been popular enough to have a fair few people involved, but how is it played?

Those bikes have one fixed gear, but no brakes and no free wheel. It's quite the balancing act as you control the ball with the bike and your head.

Pretty tough to pull a Neymar on these things, so I'm guessing diving isn't big in cycle-ball.
