Tour de France video: Rider impersonations including Cav, Cadel & Contador

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, although maybe Tommy Voeckler won't feel that flattered

Here’s a Tour de France-themed video with a difference. We're used to people doing impersonations of celebrities and sportmen… when it comes to impersonating cyclists one fan has taken things a stage further instead of impersonating the rider, he impersonates the riding styles of top riders.

Oslo resident Sindre Wiig Nordby has got his impressions of a number of riders, including Alberto Contador, Thomas Voeckler ( a big fave in these parts), Cadel Evans and Mark Cavendish, down to a T – even his compatriot Edvald Boasson Hagen gets the treatment.

It’s nice to see a victory celebration from Tyler Farrar, too – something you don’t see often these days – although one commenter on YouTube rather cruelly asked why Nordby hadn’t incorporated a crash into that particular impersonation.

Get videos. Didnt get cadel quite right, he needed to be in the drops at all times when climbing.

If you have to tell us who they are . . .

Gravity - it won't let you down.
