Dancing in Croatia

Dance moves are rare in cycling. The riders usually don’t dance before a race or after winning a race. They wave sometimes or act funny (remember all the ‘wheelies’ from Peter Sagan?), but we don’t know anything about the dancing skills in the peloton. Of course, there are some exceptions. The Australian rider Michael Matthews already showed his dance moves to the fans in 2011. A few years later he showed it again in another video. This time with some of his teammates from Orica-GreenEDGE. Nevertheless, Michael has some serious competition from now on. It comes from the Norwegian rider Sondre Holst Enger. He won the last stage in the Tour of Croatia today. He was happy with the win and on the podium he celebrated this by doing a little dance. Well, a little dance? He made quite a show of it. It looks like he has been practising to do this for a long time. Maybe some of the other riders in the peloton will see his dance moves too. Maybe it will give them some ideas about how to celebrate a win. I will not be surprised if there will be some more dance moves from other riders this season. Bring on the dance moves!
