As an everyday cyclist on the same roads he's riding, I wish his inconsiderate disregard for the rules of the road weren't glorified by Red bull. It puts the rest of us in danger when drivers are pissed off and feeling entitled to drive more aggressively around cyclists.
You think he's not contributing to motorists' attitude towards cyclists as a whole? I talk to many drivers who hate cyclists in the city because of guys like this, and they're far less tolerant of the rest of us as a result. That's ONE thing contributing to bad drivers, obviously not his fault entirely.
