You’re probably on your limit, dreading the thought of having to climb to the finish over a steep mountain. But if you’re Tobias Ludvigsson (FDJ), none of that matters, because there’s always time to pull off some gnarly tricks.
The Swede was riding alongside Spaniard Marc Soler in the break on stage nine, holding off the peloton by around 30 seconds with over 10km to go on the stage, which finished atop Cumbre del Sol.
If that wasn’t impressive enough, Luvigsson found time to pull of an impressive whip as they rode over one of the many speed bumps in the area.
Where he found the energy to pull that off, we’ll never know, but we enjoyed it all the same.
If Chris Froome’s late attack to take victory on the stage was the outstanding moment of the day, this was surely a close second.
