Very cool, but I think it could use an Akropovic slip-on.

There isn't a whole lot of ice on roads in the Mediterranean ;) from what I can see in the vid the riders all grab their front brakes in the turn, and the grip on those roads is simply too bad to get away with that.

Just riding around normally over there you can feel your back wheel searching for grip from time to time, so it doesn't surprise me that this happens if you use your front brake too vigorously in a turn. On numerous occasions I've had my front wheel in a straight skid in Greece, just braking for a traffic light.

Having said that, at the end of the clip I think I can also see an oil track going down the hill.

At 10 seconds you can see some kind of fluid all over the road.

Karma will eventually catch up with those douchebags, if it hasn't already.

I used to ride like that. Glad I have chilled out and enjoy a more sedate pace these days. Adrenaline is rough on the body!
