That cool 12-year-old kid from the Tour of Britain is a Scottish champ

Xander Graham became a viral sensation when he rode alongside the break

You might remember in September when a young cyclist rode alongside the breakaway during stage seven of the Tour of Britain. Xander Graham sprinted on the sidewalk as the four-man escape rode beside him. As Pascal Eenkhoorn of Team Jumbo-Visma passed him, he handed Graham a water bottle and created a moment to remember not only for the young Scot, but for cycling fans everywhere.

The special moment just got better for Graham, as the next day he was invited  to join the Dutch squad on the podium for the team presentation…in full Jumbo-Visma kit.

It turns out Graham may be someone to watch in the future. The Scot took the under-14 Scottish ‘cross championships on Sunday. In 2032, when you’re watching the Tour de France on HologramTV from your self-driving car, remember the name Xander Graham.
