Cracking video (below) from French Prankster Remi Gaillard, this. The infamous joker set up a full size mountain finish on a French Col, complete with fans, film crews, a 2CV support car, motorbike outriders and a man in his underpants, then filmed the reactions of sunday cyclists as they were mobbed by the adoring crowd at the summit. Reactions were, shall we say, mixed. One guy gets right into the spirit of things, telling the interviewer that "the mountain was very steep" while holding the winner's cup and wearing a viking helmet. Another chap is more bemused: "I'm not part of your race", he repeats to the oblivious crowd. Excellent stuff.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

Remi is a comic genius in the best traditions of Jacques Tati.

His football videos are well worth a look - you can find those, and much more, here:

Warning: Maybe not in work time if you have stuff to do this afternoon - you could spend ages on these  3
