Videos: Twinkle-toed pros dance their way through warm-up routines at Colorado Classic

Cannondale-Drapac's Rigoberto Uran and Caja Rural's Justin Oien throw some serious shapes...

Is there something in the air in Colorado? That's the only conclusion we can draw after the appearance of not one but two videos featuring pros dancing their way through their warm-up routines at the Colorado Classic, which finished yesterday.

First up is 22-year-old American rider Justin Oien of the Caja Rural-Seguros RGA team, who finished the race in 33rd place overall and second on the youth classification.

Next we have Tour de France runner-up Rigoberto Uran. The Cannondale-Drapac rider has a bit of a reputation when it comes to throwing shapes on the dancefloor - even getting a mention in former Team Sky colleague Geraint Thomas's autobiography, The World of Cycling According to G.

For post-stage dancing though, we're not sure anything will quite beat the celebration last year from IAM Cycling’s Sondre Holst Enger after he won the final stage of the Tour of Croatia.
