For most of us, building a bike from scratch is a hard enough job even if we have both eyes available.

But for one Movistar mechanic, featured in the WorldTour team’s new video, it’s not enough of a challenge as he attempts to do the job blindfolded.

It’s hard to know what the actual point of it is (apart from showing off), but we’re also pretty sure neither Alejandro Valverde nor Nairo Quintana would be happy heading into a Grand Tour on a bike that’s been built in the dark.

The Spanish team, who finished top of the UCI WorldTour rankings in 2015, head into the new year with objective of taking their first Grand Tour victory since Quintana won the Giro d’Italia in 2014.

But it’ll be Spanish champion Valverde who heads out to the Italian race for a shot at the pink jersey, while Colombian Quintana will refocus his efforts at beating Chris Froome (Team Sky) to Tour de France glory.
