This one makes me chuckle:

This one is funny because, the commentator's first reaction is 'very good shot' :lol:

This one can be quite funny as it is unusual (but not pro):

And if you haven't seen this one of Cipo before it is worth a watch!

I've already watched it 10 times...

Martial Gayant just adds to it by playing it straight.. his gesture says "look at the useless idiots I have to work with...I'll be surprised if this twit ever amounts to anything"

He'd crashed and damaged that shoulder a few days before, so it's no surprise some idiot who tries to touch it gets short shrift.

The shrill "don't step on my dog" clip is far funnier.

One of my favorite moments was when Contador refused to be bullied by the Armstrong/Hog mafia during the 2009 TDF.

Falling off a start ramp in a GT prologue is always good, sets the tone for the next 3 weeks!

Celebrating early and losing is a classic, especially when it is a whole lap too early.

Keisse in the Tour of Turkey this year on his way to a solo win, crashing, getting back on and the will he / won't he hold them off finish with the Eurosport commentators going mad

I was sat in dignified silence and gave a polite round of applause and quiet 'chapeau' as he crossed the line (this may not be strictly true)

In a similar vein I liked it when Vino came back from his doping ban and Bruyneel had been making noises about how he wasn't necessarily going to be welcomed back into Astana, so Vino called a press conference and basically said "er, it's my team and I am coming back, and if Bruyneel doesn't like it he can f*** off!"

I remember his breakthrough win at Liege, he was in tears at the finish. He took the opportunity to stepup from being Bartoli's domestique and while the Italian was out of cycling with nasty injury (Spinergy wheel almost sliced his kneecap off in a crash) and after Liege Betinni's future career was set.

Old, not pro, but still a classic:

You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.
