Welcome to the European Bike Stealing Championships 2015!

And the three contestants up for the challenge are Amsterdam, Rome and Prague. In the video, a bait bike is left unattended in a busy area of each city, ready for would-be thieves to have a go at them.

But little do they know the bikes are fitted with paint bombs, and a nearby brass band was on hand to celebrate the fastest thief.

According to the video a bike is stolen every five minutes in Europe, and the clip was put together by We Love Cycling as a way to spread awareness of the issue.
