A funny incident occurred in the seventh stage of the British Tour of professional cycling, where a 12-year-old child joined the race while the convoy of riders passed in front of his house, and the footage showed the young child making a great effort to join the race and ahead of the big competitors.
The real race we’re here for!
nicely done, @PascalEenkhoorn 🙌

It turned out that the child participating in the race was named Zander Graham, and he joined the adult riders after watching the race on the Internet, as a joke.

The cameras spotted the Dutch cyclist Pascal Enkorn, giving the young boy a bottle of water as a reward for his victory, and his ability to compete with them in the race, and the boy commented, “I was shocked… and I was incredibly happy… I will put this water bottle on a separate shelf in my room.”

honor the boy
At the end of the race, the boy stood on the podium among the champions in the same uniform as them, and the 12-year-old cyclist was awarded tickets VIP for the final stage of the race, which will take place in Aberdeen, from one of the Tour Britain sponsors.
