Could bike thieving be the latest "sport" to throw its hat into the Olympic ring(s)? If this video is anything to go by, you shouldn't bet against it. The European Bike Stealing Championships 2015 was, as shown in this video, an absolute banger. Not only is the hidden camera highlights of this competition an edge-of-the-seat watch, it also delivers really satisfying pay-offs with humiliating red powder explosions and orchestral fanfares off the side of lorries thrown in for good measure.

The competing cities this year were Rome, Amsterdam and Prague. We'd give you a play-by-play analysis of the thieves' movements and reveal which city "won" the gold medal but, on the other hand, we feel like to do so would lessen your enjoyment of the video itself. Is there a moral to this story? Yes. The moral is don't steal bikes.
