After heavy winds saw numerous crashes during the one-day race, Ineos Grenadiers rider Michal Kwiatkowski stepped in to help out a stranded Caleb Ewan.
And television cameras picked up the special moment as the Australian hitched a ride on the handlebars of the Polish rider’s bike.

It was a display of the sort of sportsmanship that makes professional cycling that little bit extra special, and the moment prompted a chuckle on Eurosport commentary.
Whether the pair can make it back to the group and sprint for the win with such a bike-sharing set-up remains to be seen…
