With more than 100,000 followers on Instagram, Italian cycling collective Dafne Fixed, based out of the eponymous bike shop in Rimini, have something of a cult status for their videos showcasing some madcap stunts – and we’ve featured a few of them on road.cc over the years.
As you might imagine, though, not everything goes to plan first time around, and one of their latest posts on the social network comprises a series of out-takes that no doubt would have former It’ll Be Alright on the Night host, the late Denis Norden chuckling away while clutching his clipboard.
Hopefully there was nothing more than pride that was hurt in the incidents shown in the clip – so sit back and enjoy (or wince, as the case may be).
