No it's not photoshopped. That's Dave Watson riding for Kona. It was in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Tour.

I'm glad that worked out okay. If things had gone wrong, there might have been a headline such as "Pro cyclists killed during bone-headed publicity stunt".

What most people don't know that what Watson is doing is a specific sport inside the mountain biking culture. Watson is one of THE best freeriders in the world, he knew the risk he was taking and wasn't going to injury anyone in the process. It's an awesome stunt and more props to him. I know no one here has the nuts for either of those 2 styles of riding.

Oh that is a classic now. Got a copy of New World Disorder 4. My friends wanted me to replay that seen. They were laughing at the cop trying to run over to him.
