Tour de France video: Rider impersonations including Cav, Cadel & Contador

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, although maybe Tommy Voeckler won't feel that flattered...

Here’s a Tour de France-themed video with a difference. We're used to people doing impersonations of celebrities and sportmen… when it comes to impersonating cyclists one fan has taken things a stage further instead of impersonating the rider, he impersonates the riding styles of top riders.

Oslo resident Sindre Wiig Nordby has got his impressions of a number of riders, including Alberto Contador, Thomas Voeckler ( a big fave in these parts), Cadel Evans and Mark Cavendish, down to a T – even his compatriot Edvald Boasson Hagen gets the treatment.

It’s nice to see a victory celebration from Tyler Farrar, too – something you don’t see often these days – although one commenter on YouTube rather cruelly asked why Nordby hadn’t incorporated a crash into that particular impersonation.

Simon joined as news editor in 2009 and is now the site’s community editor, acting as a link between the team producing the content and our readers. A law and languages graduate, published translator and former retail analyst, he has reported on issues as diverse as cycling-related court cases, anti-doping investigations, the latest developments in the bike industry and the sport’s biggest races. Now back in London full-time after 15 years living in Oxford and Cambridge, he loves cycling along the Thames but misses having his former riding buddy, Elodie the miniature schnauzer, in the basket in front of him.
