Jimmy Fallon took a lighthearted jab at the Tour de France on last night’s episode of the Tonight Show, using some rider photos as his comedic foil. Europcar’s Bryan Coquard and Yukiya Arashiro, Movistar’s Giovanni Visconti and John Gadret, Lampre-Merida’s Davide Cimolai and José Serpa, and Ag2r-La Mondiale’s Jean-Christophe Péraud are now each now slightly less anonymous in the US thanks to their inclusion in the bit. What were they feted for? That would be telling…you gotta watch the clip below.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born editorial director Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area and pedaling for Mtbr, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
