Video: Is this the greatest overtaking manoeuvre in the history of cycling?
Cycling doesn’t really lend itself to spectacular overtaking manoeuvres but this move pulled off in the Czech Republic recently is just out of this world.
The clip is a few days old at this stage but is only after coming to our attention today but regardless of how many times you see this it will never get old, such is the audacity of an overtaking move pulled off by Michal Marosi to claim victory at a JBC 4X Revelations race in the Czech Republic recently.
Leading the race early doors, Marosi suffered a setback when he came off his bike having slipped on the way down from a huge aerial descent and it looked as if his chances of winning the race had ended there and then.
Undeterred, Marosi got back on his bike and pursued the two cyclists in front of him until one of the final corners when he rode up and along the wall and past both of his fellow competitors to claim victory only seconds later; a reward worthy of the brilliant piece of skill which preceded it.
