The Bike Toss: A Short History

Inspired by Marcel Kittel’s “intense relationship” with his bike, we have compiled our favorite bike tossing clips into a short history of the art of the bike heave. This is by no means a completist’s collection, but enough highlights to fit nicely into the time frame of the Joe Jackson track used for the soundtrack.

That song is available here:!-bonus-track-version/id414800

Footage via Eurosport, Rai and Sporza.

Please visit Crosshairs Cycling and help support the cause with a book or some cool swag.

And thank you for watching.

    Ahh, Joe Jackson and his band. Underrated back then for sure. Throw it away. Yup.
