Giant Alpecin’s Tobias Ludvigsson may not be a famous cyclocrosser like his teammate Lars van der Haar, but he’s certainly got some impressive bike handling skills.
Ludvigsson is currently racing the Vuelta. Recently when discarded a water bottle got in his way, he utilized some impressive bike handling skills to not only avoid the bottle but prevent it from harming others. See the far back right in this short video:

Water bottles or other hand-up materials can certainly be dangerous and cause crashes even on a cyclocross course, making this skill potentially handy this season. Consider adding it to your cyclocross practice, but at your own risk.
