Video: Pizza delivery guy keeps up with the pros

We're hoping this guy gets the gig next time we order in...

We like our pizza hot here at road.cc - so next time we order a delivery, we are hoping we get this bloke, filmed at a race keeping up with the pros.

Apologies if you've seen this footage before - we think the race in question is last month's Brabantse Pijl, won by Lotto-Soudal's Tim Wellens - but it's the first time we've spotted it and like decent pizza, it's too good not to share.

 

Anyone order a pizza? : @svet.hristov

We've seen similar things before.

Remember back in the Rabobank days, Michael Cauberg looking as though he was having a much harder time than the local postie on the signature climb of the Amstel Gold race, the Cauberg?

And while we can't vouch for his riding abilities, who can forget the Deliveroo rider snapped in Reading in full Sky kit with matching Pinarello Dogma ... and wearing trainers?
