During the final stage of the 74th Tour de Pologne Szymon Godziek, Poland’s best freestyle mountain bike rider, performed a world first flip over the peloton rushing through Bukowina Tarzańska. Szymon switched from his mountain bike to a road bike in order to complete the jump in true style.

 Okay that would have been crazy enough on a hardtail, let alone a fucking road bike!!! That is intense.
  • + 47
 What a nutter!
  • + 50
 Crazy? Flipping in lycra - now that's off the hook Wink
  • + 34
 @railin: yeah, full roadie gear - lycra, road shoes clipped in, and roadie helmet with no visor. He was in full costume. Nice work!
  • + 32
 it appears to be a campagnolo, not an intense
  • + 21
 @sledMXer: he's on flats so it doesn't count, also he's not wearing glasses, and has no water bottles, he needs to do it again lol

 @jaycubzz: another overhyped, snobbish Italian job made in China. Nothing beats Pinarello though... beware of their counterfeits, they actually may be better than the original

 @WAKIdesigns: my favourite overhyped, snobbish italian job made in taiwan is Bianchi

 @hamncheez: whats that?

 @essfour: Road gap! Here come the cops--get yr pants back on. Lip tested by Swish Inc. No gas digger required.
  • + 3
 Serious question, what sort of road tires/pressure was he using that they didn't just explode
  • + 2
 That is the the biggest thing I've seen done on a road bike !!! Fu:c
  • + 3
 @essfour: Thank you! I instantly thought of Dave Watson
  • + 4
 @essfour: you think Dave is like Uncle Rico? If I only coulda stuck the landing. Coach should have put me in
  • + 3
 @essfour: seen it a million times but the best part that I never noticed before: he almost lost his pants on the crash and had to pull them up as he ran away. No wonder they caught him!

 Rigid bmx bikes jump stuff that big all day
  • + 4
 @fastback570: uh yeah, theyre also steel, weigh 25lbs more and suck to pedal sooooo yeah apples to jalapeños my guy
  • + 1
 So true ???? Watson was a legend but this is a great level up@slayersxc17:

 It went by too fast and I missed it. Can you slow it down a bit? Maybe show a different angle?

 Fave comment status!


BTW everyone notice the streetsign at :26 with the inverted roadie?

I also say "Dausch!" when i stick it.
  • + 71
 Lol none of them even looked up at him
  • + 38
 They're probably all sick and tired of people trying to jump bikes over them. Seems like a common occurrence these days.
  • + 63
 roadies being roadies!!
  • + 4
 Not up but definitely that one dude looked back, hahaha.
  • + 2
 @dkidd: Very SICK!!!! Only thing is, he should have been on his slopestyle bike doing his signature special trick! Frown Next Mission Wink Cork 720 Tuck No Hander!!!!! Wink Smile

 Yes like 3 out of the hundred might have said woo. film staff most like did the woos.

 @panchocampbell: Probably racers being racers
  • + 42
 That was EPO! I mean DOPE! Whatever...
  • + 35
 Shout out to Dave Watson for the OG road race gap.
  • + 4
 All he needed was another foot or two and he would have nailed that jump Frown
  • + 2
 @jptothetree: this one is cool but the original was much better just for its total unexpectedness. He didn't even do a trial run, and that copper running after him! Never will Watson be bested!
  • + 1
 @jaame: Watson def takes the cake as you said, especially considering he didn't really have much of a landing. This one seems to have a hint of corporate taint to itSmile Still wicked watching a road bike flip over numerous roadies tho.
  • + 2
 @VPS13: absolutely. I'm not going to say contrived, but the rawness is what made Watson's just totally off the scale
  • + 32
 what??? I can't even jump a kilo of tortillas!!!

Awesome... give this man a Beer
  • + 15
 I'm not even close to just jumping half a kilo of tea bags ...

 @Jack-McLovin: i can't even jump over the Oompa Loompa-in-chief.
  • + 12
 I'm getting close to jumping a litre of maple syrup!

 I jumped a liter of cola once

 I´m going to jump a liter of Slivovica today

 @Dmjouuu: you guys tend to fall short on those high percentage doubles
  • + 19
 Very impressive but if only we could had seen just one more camera angle, like the look of contempt from one of the riders in the peloton.
  • + 30
 Sagan is there, I was surprised he didn't stop and try it himself.
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: word on the street is that he's too busy being the new sparring partner of Conor McGregor
  • + 3
 Yea, he's good with elbows, people fall at the fence even without being touche
  • + 19
 Can't wait next year Tour de France and this triple cork on a pizza box

 that road sign!

 The sickest MoFo out there. What up next? Flipping over Cam Zinks 180 at rampage with a road bike?

 How can one flip, with such huge balls!?

 Gyro motion, its Science B!T(H
  • + 7
 How did they convince the roadies to do all those takes! amazing! They must have been very tired!
  • + 3
 Nieźle Szymon! W szoku byłem jak oglądałem wiadomości na Bolsacie a tam info że spec od freestylu rowerowego zasadził salto nad peletonem! Ja pacze mówie Szymon, ale co on ma za nowy model do slopestylu bo coś mi się kąty nie zgadzają i nagle kopara, rower szosowy! Jesteś potrzaskany Szymon fchuj! Polski Pastrana nam wyrósł Smile

 I think many are overlooking something pretty important here. Is Pologne pronounced the same as Bologne, but with a P?
  • + 4
 Indeed it is. Very good question.
  • + 4
 Tour de Pologne is french, Bologna is italian, so i would go with colon, more than bolognese or gnocchi.

I always wondered why they named it in french. I mean... tour de france, vuelta d'italia, etc and f*ckin' tour de pologne..
It shoud be "Wyścig dookoła Polski", but then everyone outside Poland, would be more likely to levitate spontaneously, than pronounce it properly.
  • + 2
 @lk3city: wait a sec, he's clearly talking about the French for Bologna, which is Bologne. Pronounced like Pologne, but more saucy.

Christ, we need this f*ckin race in MSA to get going...

 @BenPea: Eau du Cologne

 Boss move. Gangster!

 it is 2017 and we are still yet to find something that red bull won't sponsor
  • + 1
 Cool... but I wish we could of seen a few more different angles. Maybe should have had a drone... Kidding. That was insane! You could tell how much they had prepared for it and how many people he had supporting him. Pure awesome.
  • + 5
 Someone find out what wheels that bike was rolling on
  • + 6
 Mavic Cosmic Elite with 20 spokes front and rear Smile
  • + 5
 Ummm. Check your facts RedBull, that wasnt the Tour De France....
  • + 9
 That got changed pretty quick. LOL. The comments live on forever!
  • + 1
 Lol, i've upvoted you, they cannot hide the conspiracy

  • + 5
