Romanian XC mountain bike champion Vlad Dascalu has been training with a drone in recent months. It’s likely that Vlad has a hard time finding anybody else who can keep up with him when he’s training, since he’s one of the fastest mountain bikers in Europe. We’re not sure how this works, but it’s an interesting idea for those riders who want somebody—or some thing—to stay with them  when they’re putting in the training miles.
