Video: Road rage driver confronts cyclist only for Russian special forces to intervene

Don’t mess with cyclists (or at least don’t mess with the guy in the car behind)

A video recently doing the rounds shows two men being bundled into the back of a van by what appear to be Russian special forces following a road rage incident involving a cyclist. It doesn’t however seem that the initial confrontation was the armed men’s motivation for intervening.  

A number of versions of the video have appeared on YouTube and other channels, several of which have since been removed.

The driver and passenger of a Porsche Cayenne get out of their vehicle and confront a cyclist who appears to be trying to cross the road. A white Land Cruiser and a minivan pull up behind and when a third man emerges from the Porsche and approaches the Land Cruiser, armed men leap from the van.

The gunmen bundle at least two of the three men into their van and one then drives the Porsche away.

Any number of different opinions have been aired as to what might have been going on here, but it’s notable that the armed men only appear when the third man approaches the Land Cruiser. Weird Russia suggests that the person travelling in that vehicle was a high ranking civil servant and the armed men were there to provide protection.

Staged. Do you really think that someone was at the right spot filming that?

All the tough guys were of the same build.

A training exercise, possibly in taking down a gang by distracting them with a sacrificial cyclist.

From my extensive experience of special forces (Black Hawk down, bravo two zero, all the die hard movies ) if I was someone important that would look like an ambush. They didn't even see what was going on with the cyclist and doubt they would care they'd probably have run him down if he crossed in front of them.

Go's to show don't pick a fight with someone you don't know they maybe bigger and uglier than you.

Don't think it's staged, looks more like special force training actually. The guys from porsche all looke alike and too dumb with those white caps. 

Well done for trainig anyway )

Nice to see Porsche road-rage bullies themselves being bullied, but gees, it's the wild-west on Russian roads! Much as we moan about the state of the UK (whether for riding in, or politics or living in general) I think most of us would rather be living here than there. Certainly if I was living there I'd want to either be rich or not living in a big city (but then, how many cyclists don't want to be both rich and living somewhere scenic ;-)).

I don't care if everyone has already seen this, it's still funny. I'd want these guys to come to my help.

I think the Porsche driver looks coked up. You reap what you sow...

Don't we all wish that sort of thing happened on English A-roads to Audi* drivers?
