You’d think that cyclists would be more weary of celebrating early after several similar incidents happened over the past year, but clearly Adama Toupalik didn’t get the memo. The 19 year old was competing in a World Championship race recently and raised his arms in victory while crossing the line a lap early. He was overtaken and lost the world title.
Here he is celebrating with a lap still to go. Shame.
The footage is painful as commentators and spectators all realise he thinks he is world champion.
That will learn him.
