I have also wondered why, in a country with over one BILLION people, why India can't produce just one measly pro cyclist. Just one!
Well my loyal readers, I have found the videographic proof of why there are no professional cyclists from India! They have likely all been hit and/or maimed by motorized vehicles!
Please do the needful, and enjoy the video.
I work with a lot of Indian folks at Yahoo, and I asked one of my friends there if this is how it is everywhere in India. He said the following things over IM about driving in India:
"there are lots of unmanned intersections where you need to have special skillsets to cross :-)"
...driving in india is way more crazy particularly after driving here. if i go back - i would be driven nuts. everybody is in a hurry, simple rules like stopping at unmanned intersection and first come, first cross basis are not followed there.
everyoine is in a hurry and want to cross over first ￼ - so it becomes a mess."
