"Don't stand if you can sit and don't sit if you can lie down" - that's the motto of a pro cyclist and Cannondale's Toms Skujins has got it down to a tee.
As part of Velon's new 'My Day' feature, Skujins takes us behind the scenes of exactly what he gets up to when he's not on his bike during a race - and it's a pretty relaxed situation.
We join the Latvian lying on his bed, legs up on the wall and video camera in hand. "This is the classic cyclist set-up: legs up, laptop out, nothing else to do."
The music is also pretty sombre, almost making you feel sorry for the situation that Skujins finds himself in as he tries to recover from a hard day on the bike.
The video takes a turn for the weird as he visits Ruben Zepunkte having a massage, with the towel around the German's waste barely concealing his junk as he flexed his leg up.
It can't be much fun to be holed up in a hotel in the middle of nowhere during a bike race, but hey, it's better than having a real job, right?
