Top 10 cycling videos of 2015

Crashes, wind and mad skills

There have been some great moments captured on video in 2015 and Cyclingnews has collated some of the best of those to look back over the season. Watch some insane tricks, some of the biggest racing moments of the year and Mark Cavendish falling into a large puddle. 

Is there a video you think we should have included in our list? Let us know in the comments below. 

Fans causing trouble at the Giro d'Italia

One of the most watched moments of this year's Giro d'Italia came when a spectator decided to join the race near the finish of stage two to Genoa. After causing several riders to crash, the spectator made a quick exit stage left as the fallers picked themselves up. It wasn't the only crash caused by a fan during the Giro d'Italia. Daniele Colli was taken down by a fan's camera four days later, which also resulted in Alberto Contador dislocating his shoulder.

A heart-stopping rampage

Bravery or insanity, watch Kurt Sorge's run at the 2015 Red Bull rampage. The 1:29 clip sees the Canadian make some seemingly impossible jumps on the course in Sourthern Utah. Sorge is only the second rider to win the Red Bull rampage twice after taking victory in 2012.

Contador v Aru

Despite dislocating his collarbone earlier in the race, Alberto Contador was dominant in the Giro d'Italia's mountains. During stage 16, Astana and Fabio Aru put the Spaniard under pressure following a puncture on the descent from Aprica. Contador didn't crack and managed to reel in what remained of the peloton on the Mortirolo. The tables then turned when Contador attacked and Aru found himself in trouble.

Sagan shows his skills

Peter Sagan is known as one of the best bike handlers in the peloton and he put on a masterclass during this year's Tour de France. After making it into a break on stage 16, the Slovakian was forced to chase down Ruben Plaza on the descent of the Col du Manse. He missed out on victory but put on a brilliant display of bravery and skill.

Inside the mayhem

This has to be one of the most intense and fascinating videos this season. The Orica-GreenEdge team are famed for their backstage pass videos and thanks to the Velon-Go Pro agreement, the Australian team put a camera on mechanic Fausto Opici during stage 3. The camera caught the mayhem that followed a huge crash that saw many of their team go down along with race leader Fabian Cancellara.

Crosswinds galore

It was a race that many riders believe should not have been held but the windswept 2015 edition of Gent-Wevelgem provided us with some gripping television images. The strong crosswinds that battered the peloton resulted in several riders ending up in the roadside canal while Geraint Thomas did a somersault off the bike in the break but managed to regain touch to finish third.
