Maniac Mountain Biker Jumps Over The Tour de France Race

July 17, 2019

This is a video of mountain biker Valentin Anouilh jumping a road gap as a group of Tour de France racers pass underneath. Now I'm all for hurting yourself doing something stupid, but I can't condone potentially injuring one of these riders because your jump went south. That's not cool. Also not cool: performance enhancing drugs. Except boner pills, those things are a must.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Nicholas H, who agrees jumping under the riders would have been even more impressive.

    Is he the French version of Logan Paul?

    I'm often amazed at how drastically different top tier cyclists of one discipline are from top tier cyclists of a different discipline. You look at a top tier freestyle flatlands rider he or she probably looks like your average skateboarder. A top tier mountain biker is gonna look... well, a lot like a road biker but with more scars. A top tier road biker looks like a roid-ranging douchebag. A top tier trials biker is basically a levitating wizard cat-ninja whose feet never touch the ground... somehow.

    Did they know he was going to do that or did he just come flying out of nowhere?

    You mean the oblivious cyclists below?

  • Eric Ord

    Just because your field of vision is shit doesn't mean theirs has to be. Let people LIVE!

  • Douchy McDouche

    Those professional cyclists are training for months to be in a race that requires concentration and insane amounts of effort but sure, they'd totally ignore all that so they can watch a dude do a jump over them.

  • Eric Ord

    When else would they get the opportunity?

  • JJtoob

    That's not the opportunity they are looking for. If anything, they'll look for the opportunity that anyone else got distracted to take the next position.

  • Eric Ord

    Maybe they're all just really magnanimous.

  • James Mcelroy

    can't agree with you more. Be stupid if you want, but don't make your stupidity other people's problems.

    Disagree. He plows right into the crowd of cyclists, this video gets 1000% better

  • ShartInYourJacuzzi

    Congrats on making this the first time ever that a bike race was entertaining to watch.

  • Ghost Pirates

    Just wait until the next time this happens and the rider crashes into the competitors!

  • ShartInYourJacuzzi

    That would be fucking awesome
