Graeme Obree in Superman Position

After his “praying mantis” position being banned by the UCI, Graeme Obree developed another riding position, the “Superman” style (pictured above), his arms fully extended in front, and he won the individual pursuit at the world championships with this and Old Faithful in 1995. That position was also banned later by the cycling’s governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale.
