    This Is What Is Looks Like To Cycle Through The Channel Tunnel In Under An Hour

    No issues with delays here.

    Not only is Chris Froome the defending Tour de France champion but he has now done something no one else has ever achieved.

    The Team Sky leader rode through the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone to Calais in just 55 minutes.

    The 29-year-old said cycling under the sea was an incredible experience.

    “Opportunities to become the first person in the world to achieve these kind of feats are extremely rare nowadays, especially as a pro cyclist,” the Kenyan-born rider added.

    The stunt was organised by Team Sky and Jaguar, and negotiations began over six months ago.

    Froome is in action again today, as the fourth stage of the 2014 Tour makes its way from Le Touquet-Paris-Plage to Lille Métropole.

    The defending champion is currently in fifth place overall.
