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.
