The Two-Bike Tango – Click above to watch video after the jump

If you're like us, you probably don't admit to watching So You Think You Can Dance, yet you quietly enjoy (and even critique) the dancers on the hit reality show. We'd probably feel better about admitting our viewership if they replaced the Quickstep with the Two-Bike Tango. It's a brand new style just created by two motorcycle racers at the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours in France.

To do the Two-Bike Tango, one rider needs to spill in a turn, and the now-sliding bike will take out another unsuspecting rider. The two riders clear the raceway as their bikes join throttles, and proceed to spin around each other.

It's not as sexy or forbidden as the Lambada, but onlookers can't turn away. Click past the jump to experience... the Two-Bike Tango!

      LOL. I like how the other guy has a grip on himself. Imagine if both of them were jumping around while their bikes were spinning. lol

      ALL he had to do was to kick the motorcycle so it would stop ,what an idiot!!

        Rotating in that manner, the only part that was accessible to kick would have been the rear wheel. With the throttle floored, that race compound wheel was spinning at.. we'll say 100 mph at the perimeter. You're suggesting that he kick that super-sticky, ultra strong, fast-rotating, out of control superbike wheel with his healthy, flesh-n-bone foot in an attempt to dislodge a 400 lb(ish) MOTORcycle? The Risk/Benefit ratio on that is very low, my friend.

        Unlike animals, motorcycles don't get distracted by physical intervention.

        Yeah, and brake your ankle in the process.

      I'm sorry, but a 115 lb man wearing a helmet and throwing a temper tantrum cannot be taken seriously. Haha!

      Lol. What a clown. Did he really think he'd have any success in freeing his bike? Once that sucker started the twirl the race was over. Just love his hopin and jumpin trying to get at it. Too good.

        I've never raced bikes, but I can imagine that the mental state you have to get yourself in to pilot thos rockets at the limit is anything but relaxed...

        Dude's just eager to get back into the race. Would like to see YOU come of a bike at speed and be eager to get back on.

      That dude just had a full blown case of tourettes! He's just been voted "Most Likely to Kick His Dog When He Gets Home".

      Is it just me, or was the initial fall the lamest ever? Did he slip on a banana peal of something. The whole episode reminds me of a circus clown act.

        Right! The only thing missing was the wacky/zaney music in the background!
