Watch: Mountain Biker jumps over Tour de France cyclists!

Watch as a mountain biker jumps over the Tour de France peloton during Stage 10 of the 2019 Tour de France!

 

France – A daredevil mountain biker has leapt across the Tour de France peloton and produced a breathtaking video of the action.

Valentin Anouilh, a 19 year old mountain biker, made the daring jump during Stage 10 on Wednesday. Jumping over Stage 10 of the Tour de France is fast becoming something of a tradition, as seemingly every year another mountain biker tries it.

The crazy act has been met with equal negative and positive comments, with some saying that the jump was irresponsible as he could have hurt the riders, while others are applauding him for his great jump.

Notably, in 2003, Canadian mountain biker Dave Watson was the first person to jump the Tour peloton on stage 8 and was arrested immediately but it seems the Tour de France are being a little more lenient and haven’t even mentioned this year’s act in their news updates.
