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: itunes.apple.com/us/album/look-sharp!-bonus-track-version/id414800
Footage via Eurosport, Rai and Sporza.

And thank you for watching.

Ahh, Joe Jackson and his band. Underrated back then for sure. Throw it away. Yup.
Great tune…better punchline. Love the ending!
