Cyclists get a bad rep. Especially pro cyclists. We don't see much of them, we have bad opinions of their phenomenal performance, and we only really see them giving out when idiots run in their path while their in a race.
But Dan Martin and Chris Froome proved that cyclists do have a sense of humour after being unimpressed with the official Rio 2016 app.
The cycling in the Olympics doesn't get underway until Saturday, but as Dan Martin keenly points out - they've already predicted what's going to happen to the Tour de France winner:

Nice of Dan to warn the Tour de France champion of his future demise. It also predicted that Giro D'Italia champion Vincenzo Nibali would retire from the race after just 78 km, with nearly 2/3 of the race to go.
Credit to Froome though, he knows when to poke fun at himself with this response and obvious reference to his Tour de France jog:
ouch! That would be a long run to the finish 😁😂

The men's road race is 241.km long, so crashing after 46 km would leave Froome with over four marathons to run.
