It’s not often that you see a world champion giving a rival a helping hand: but this is Peter Sagan .
The road race world champion gave a fellow rider a helpful hand as they were struggling up an extremely windy climb during the 2016 Tour de San Luis last week.
In a video posted by Sagan (Tinkoff) on his Facebook page , and shot by a roadside spectator, you can see the riders grinding up a mountain road into a brutal headwind.
Several fans also assist the riders by giving them a shove, as several riders appear to be struggling to stay upright let alone maintain enough momentum to finish the stage.
