Video: Mountain Biker Jumps Over Chris Froome In Yellow
It was almost exactly 10 years ago when Dave Watson surprised tour spectators by launching himself off a road gap over riders in the Tour de France. Less than ideal circumstances and a rough landing led to Dave not quite sticking the landing, but it was forever stamped in mountain biking history as the Tour de France gap jump.
Fast forward to the present, and 10 years later Romain Marandet and the crew from Encho Rage helped Kevin Demolis, Alexis Bosson, Killian Bron, and Emeric Caron celebrate the occasion with another jump over the Tour. This time, right over the yellow jersey, and they stomped the landing.
Check out the making of the jump, after the break!
