Some of the weird and wonderful videos we've spotted over the weekend...

It's been some weekend at the Tour de France with a couple of absolutely cracking stages in the Pyrenees - but there's been a fair bit going on away from the front of the race and here are some of our favourite videos we've spotted.

First up, we have Peter Sagan being ... well, Peter Sagan. It's not unusual for fans to try and give riders something during mountain stages - a bottle of water, a newspaper ahead of a descent and even (as happened to Adam Hansen a few years back) a cold beer coming over the final climb of the race.

Here's a new one, though. Ahead of Saturday's climb of the Tourmalet, at the back of the race, a fan runs alongside the three-time world champion, profferring Sagan a pen and copy of his autobiography, which comes back duly signed. Pure class.

The stage also saw Movistar's Costa Rican rider Andrey Amador, his work for Nairo Quintana and Mikel Landa done for the day, have an impromptu family reunion.

Meanwhile, at the finish, Groupama-FDJ manager Marc Madiot was getting rather excited at Thibaut Pinot's stage win which, together with the French rider's efforts today, have recouped the time he lost during to crosswinds on Stage 4 and put him right back in the hunt for the yellow jersey. Fair to say he got a bit excited and he also spoke about his reaction to ITV's Daniel Freibe this morning..

Meanwhile, here's race leader Julian Alaphilippe raising an eyebrow or two about having French President Emmanuel Macron chatting to Pinot behind him.

And finally ... Some fans paint the names of their favourite riders on Tour de France climbs, others paint penises ... and it turns out that ASO has a way of dealing with the latter.

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.
