Video: Rider does amazing backflip over Tour de Pologne peloton

Red Bull-sponsored mountain bike slopestyler Szymon Godziek pulls off spectacular stunt during final stage

Red Bull-sponsored slopestyle mountain biker Szymon Godziek pulled off a spectacular stunt at the Tour de Pologne this week - by switching to a road bike and doing a backflip over the peloton.

He pulled off the stunt, which was filmed from multiple angles, early into the final stage of the race from Bukowina Tatrzanska.

We've seen similar stunts before at road races - remember French mountain biker Romain Marandet who jumped over the Tour de France, including race leader Chris Froome, in 2013?
