The fastest fast food? Deliveroo rider in full Team Sky kit on a Pinarello

We’re wondering if it’s one of the Team Sky boys who didn’t get the Tour de France gig

Deliveroo delivery riders are now a common sight in Britain’s cities, zooming around with those big boxes on their back to get that meal from A (the restaurant) to B (your sofa).

And if those corporate black and sky blue corporate colours seem a bit familiar, it could be because they are shared with a certain UCI WorldTour team.

Props, then, to the Deliveroo rider snapped in Reading by reader Gila Joffe Overton who is not just dressed in full Team Sky kit, but is also riding a Pinarello Dogma, from the Italian firm that just renewed their deal as bike sponsor to the British outfit.

Talk about putting the ‘fast’ into fast food.
