Video shows shocking lengths one Danish team boss will go to to make riders go faster… probably

Danish firm OK's ad highlights its involvement in grass roots sport. Kind of.

When cyclists talk about dealing with wind they're normally talking about it blowing in their faces on long, gritty rides that are best shot in black and white with pained expressions.

But Danish fuel company OK have dreamt up this yarn of a local cycling club experimenting with other forms of wind as a performance advantage. You know where this is going. Since the best rated comment on YouTube states that "The translation sucked big, juicy monkey balls" we're guessing that some of the nuances of the humour may have been lost in translation, but we like to snigger at farting so there's plenty to like here however awry the English words might be. Anyway. Take it away, made-up Danish coach guy...

Thanks to Andy Lulham for the spot.

Very funny - shame it ends with a shill for petrol, but hey - you can't have everything

Well most of their commercials are about supporting local sport clubs and in the same genre. That being said i have no idea how much/little they actually support with.

Rumours are circulating that Pat McQuid is moving quickly to ban the use of cigarette lighters fixed to rear of saddles to prevent " those cheating b*st*ard's who are illegally exploiting the methane after-burn advantage" and putting in jeopardy the safety of the peloton un the process.

Pat went on to say " The UCI remains vigilant to all forms of cheating"
