HOUSTON (Web Desk) – While cycling upright has been the norm for us mere mortals, it appears you need to be more like Superman to achieve that aerodynamic ideal.

Many diehard cyclists will see such moves risky, but for Michael Guerra, sitting along a saddle is overrated. As he comes near his fellow bicyclists, he ditches his upright positioning for a horizontal, plank-like one.

At one time in his superhero position, firmly gripping the handlebars, Guerra flies past his competitors before then passing a woman on a moped whose open-mouthed expression says it all.

The video has racked up more than 4.2 million views since it was uploaded on Wednesday and has been partaken in more than 68,000 times on Facebook.
