Mythbusters said not to try anything they do on the show.

yeah, he's just cycling, when drafting behind a truck on a bicycle it is actually very easy, just extremely dangerous.
Mythbusters did it

now why did my phone do that?

I imagine he's using the slipstream caused by the truck. Reduced wind resistant so you can achieve higher speeds.

I top out at over 50 mph, without drafting anything (but definitely going downhill). Super dangerous, but if you draft off a large vehicle you can get going a whole lot faster.

I should also point out I'm not even a very good cyclist and my bike, as far as road racing bikes go, is kind of old and cheap.

Yeah, I agree with catchall. I was just the commissaire vehicle for a road race, and these guys hit 80 km/h easily on the downhills, not drafting off of anything except the guy in front of them.

He was feeling the need for speed.
