Ecuadorian star Jonathan Caicedo cycles 110 miles… but loses 2ft from finish line after celebrating early

Ecuador bike owner Jonathan Caicedo rode 110 miles and appeared nailed on to win the primary stage of the 61st Tour of Asturias but misplaced out simply two ft from the line after celebrating too early.

Main the pack after 177kms, Caicedo determined to let go of his handlebars and lift his arms aloft.

Russian Dmitry Strakhov snuck in and grabbed the win with milliseconds to spare to crush the Group Medellin rider.

The hilly journey from Oviedo to Pola de Lena left the peloton gasping for air but Caicedo thought he had sufficient time to brag.

Strakhov leads the general standings with Caicedo caught in second after his blooper.

Twitter consumer Victor Arango sarcastically labelled the second-positioned rider a genius, saying: “Jonathan Caicedo, the genius who celebrated early today within the Vueltina isn’t Colombian. He rides for Medellin but he's Ecuadorian.”

And biking fan Mabel Morilloe was even much less sympathetic, she wrote: “That's the way you study Jonathan Caicedo, cheer up!”
