Mountain biking’s gone Harlem Shake crazy!

It was bound to happen sooner or later – the Harlem Shake has hit mountain biking, with predictably messy consequences! The latest dance craze sweeping the internet has a simple format: one guy starts off gyrating manically to Baauer’s Harlem Shake before, without warning, a whole crowd of people suddenly join in. Crazy outfits are de rigueur and pelvic thrusting is pretty much compulsory.

First off, the Chain Reaction Cycles crew released this little doozy:

Then their whole homepage started doing the Harlem Shake, and it was so infectious that we joined in too! (You might want to turn the volume down before clicking on these links…)

CRC weren’t the only ones at it though – we came across this effort made by the UK’s Elliott Sturgess and his mates on one of their local downhill trails:

We reckon this one from GripMedia takes the biscuit though, with a jump train over the assembled Harlem Shakers!

We’re sure there are more MTB Harlem Shake vids out there but frankly, we’ve seen enough. Seems like these guys have too…
