Colombian may have lost maglia rosa today - but he'll win a lot of fans with these skillz .....

Movistar's Nairo Quintana may have lost the leadership of the Giro d'Italia after today's individual time trial - but he is bound to have won over some new admirers thanks to this stunning bunnyhop over a kerb at today's Stage 10 individual time trial.

It's even more impressive when seen from this angle in a video on the Gazzetta dello Sport's website.

The Colombian's save meant he avoided a spectacular crash - but Gazprom-RusVelo rider Pavel Brutt wasn't quite so lucky.

Nor was Team Sky's former world time trial champion Vasil Kiryienka, who crashed on the final bend ... he still set what at the time was the fastest time, but finished fifth on the stage, 2 minutes off the pace.

Meanwhile, Sunweb's Tom Dumoulin, the new race leader, almost took out two podium hostesses after being presented with the maglia rosa following today's stage ... although not in a George Hincapie, "Reader, I married her" kind of way.

Photo of the day, we reckon, goes to top Belgian snapper Tim De Waele, who set up this pic of Jasper Stuyven, who was clearly not on one of those days where he was going to leave it all on the road.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
