Cyclist causes stir with stunt video on Bradley Wiggins' Tour de France bike
A mountain bike trials rider has caused a stir after posting a video of himself performing a range of impressive tricks - on the same road bike used by Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins.
Martyn Ashton is well-known for the stunts shown in the video - which includes clips of him in Bristol - but they are more usually performed on a mountain bike.
In the video, Mr Ashton - a professional trials rider - takes the £10k carbon road bike used by Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish for a ride.
In one scene (at 1:54) Mr Ashton can be seen manoeuvring himself across the top of the sides of the Bath Road bridge crossing the train tracks near Temple Meads station.

Posted alongside the video is this statement: "With a plan to push the limits of road biking as far as his lycra legs would dare, Martyn looked to get his ultimate ride out of the awesome Pinarello Dogma 2."
Viewers on YouTube, where the video was posted, have posted comments describing the unusual stunts as "awesome".
