Who's the top wrapper at Cannondale-Drapac?...

The month after he finished second to Chris Froome at the Tour de France, Rigoberto Uran found himself in a rather different kind of battle - taking on Cannondale-Drapac team mechanic Jorge Quieros in a challenge to find out who can wrap handlebar tape quickest.

Their contest features in this video from team sponsor fi'zi:k upladed to YouTube in August and the first in a series of similar challenges - you'll find others on the brand's page on the video-sharing site.

 If you've never wrapped your own bartape and fancy having a go, here's road.cc's guide to how to do it.

> How to wrap handlebar tape

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.
