VIDEO: Chris Froome Arm Wrestling with Marcel Kittel

By We Love Cycling

Who’s going to win? The climber or the sprinter? It doesn’t happen very often that you see Chris and Marcel go head-to-head. It might very well be the first ever showdown between these two, actually. So when they sat down to arm wrestle in Shanghai last week, they were certain to draw a large crowd.

We might have expected this to be pretty straightforward, but the duel actually started in a deadlock. Froome tried to topple his rival over a couple of times with no effect. And in the end Marcel showed “the difference between climber and sprinter”.

Chris proved to be a good sport though, and made up for the disappointment the day after when he won the Shanghai Criterium ahead of Rigoberto Uran.
