Maybe it comes from the hippy roots of the sport, but mountain bikers are a pretty peaceful bunch. However, that’s not to say we can’t be driven to our limits when push comes to shove. Truth be told though, we aren’t the best fighters (we must be better lovers), so don’t expect anything like a Connor McGregor bout, more angry words and gentle shoves.
Now, we don’t condone the behaviour in any of these videos… but they do make for a funny watch. Here are five mountain bike fights caught on camera.
The Neo Nazi riot
Last year’s City Downhill race in Bratislava was interrupted by this Neo Nazi protest. To be honest they just sort of burst in then mill around in their balaclavas not doing much. Apart from one guy in a Where’s Wally hat who unsuccessfully tried to steal a camera… then some wire (at about 1:20). Nutter.
