As the Tour de France makes its way through the English countryside, Team Sky and sponsor Jaguar have released a video of the 2013 race winner Chris Froome cycling the Eurotunnel.

The cyclist said it was a strange but “incredible experience” cycling 100m beneath the English Channel, and proposed that in the future it “could be a really cool stage of the race!”

Froome continued:

“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.

“To become the first person ever to cycle through the Eurotunnel was right up there with some of the most iconic rides I’ve ever done – this must have been one of very few ‘world first’ rides left!”

Eurotunnel gave Froome permission to cycle along the central service tunnel to which travellers were today evacuated after a power cable came down in one of the main train tunnels.
