Presenter and reporter on Pensacola, Florida news bulletin avoid the obvious

Here's something you don't see every day. A news anchor is asking an on-the-spot reporter about flooding in Pensacola, Florida, when a guy on a tall bike happens past.

The cyclist clearly knows the cameras are rolling - he comes back for another pass - but he is studiously ignored by both the presenter in the studio, and the reporter whose piece he has successfully videobombed.

Pros, all three of them.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.

Could the news anchor blink any more frequently? It was really offputting...
