    From road.cc...


    "The real competition is out on the road": Rigoberto Urán drafted by man with khakis, work boots and a backpack at 45km/h




    He has all the gear and a very good idea, but still Rigoberto Urán was humbled by a cyclist carrying a backpack and dressed in baggy khakis on a training ride in his native Colombia. Dressed in full EF Pro Cycling kit and riding a Cannondale SuperSlice TT bike, Urán appears to be putting plenty of effort in, but our hero hangs on quite comfortably. Unless they're some SPD-equipped heavy duty boots we don't know about, his footwear isn't exactly advantageous either.

    According to Marca(link is external), the cyclist is a farmer and the pair were riding at around 45km/h. When they stopped for a quick chat, Urán says he was "surprised" by the man's speed despite his advanced years: "This streamlined guy appears alongside me and I thought, this one is getting ready for the Tour", he added.

    It appears this definitely wasn't a set up photo/video opportunity either; Uran's Strava account(link is external) shows that he completed a four hour jaunt yesterday morning, taking in over 2,000m of elevation over a distance of 112km.

    looks like it's a slight downhill and you can tell when they stopped to chat.
    But drafting at 45 km/h in baggies is impressive

    That’s too funny. I love that he was humble enough to invite him for the zwift race. Kindness is easy if it’s all you do.

    well that farmer doesn't look fat at all. I thought he was a fat uncle Bob underneath those baggies, but hell he looked fit on Zwift

    The guy had a pretty decent bike for a farmer. Should put flats on it though. Bravo to him.
