Pavel Alekhin's Custom Brake for White Style
Vishneviy's trademark is pretty much being brakeless and having awesome paint jobs. For this year's whitestyle, it was obvious that he needed a brake to be able to ride the course safely, so he put one on but still has no lever on the handlebars... The idea is to use his knee to move the lever sideways to brake. Despite the sketchy look of his setup, it actually seems like a good idea and I'm curious to know how it worked out!
