Peter Sagan scoffed down a handful of Haribo gummy bears after the Kurne-Brussels-Kurne and the video evidence of the unusual diet choice went viral very quickly. The 8-year-old Ruby Isaac from the UK saw the video as well and decided to recreate this memorable moment on her Twitter account.

The Bora-Hansgrohe pro replied within a few hours and even cheered the young girl on, mentioning that with this kind of attitude, she could even become a world champ herself one day.
You could even become a world champion in a few years… So, remember never give up! https://t.co/Tc7tB9ZuNL
