It's a lever for adjusting the resitance on the back wheel unit.

I think it's just the resistance lever/ mech on the front wheel instead of the handlebars. I've seen some Saxo and Europcar guys do the same thing.

I'd wager he'll perform better if he's got both arms though

As someone who is aggressively balding, I'm going to take offense and make some allusion to better genes or something.
