Bart Wellens mega-bike lift

Who doesn't love Bart Wellens? He's a scrapper. Doesn't always look like the smoothest guy out there, but without question he's a freak of nature.

Case in point: this video from the Roubaix WC last season shows Bart coming into the barriers at 88mph like Doc Brown in the Delorean, then does an insane bike port as he's going over the barriers.

Funny to see Wellens with his bike 6 feet in the air, to Boom and Stybar (love that kid!) who follow him with your standard barrier technique, which looks kind of dull in comparison.
