Nibali Finally Earns His Kiss From Podium Girl

It is said that one never knows what does a lady really want and Vincenzo Nibali would surely agree to it. The stage two Tour de France winner needed much more than a single-day win to earn a kiss from one of the podium beauties who comically snubbed him down while the rider approached her for a peck on cheek.

It was only after Nibali safely emerged with his overall lead in the 3rd stage of Tour de France, the podium lady agreed to plant the much desired kiss on Nibali’s awaiting cheek. The Astana rider had a slightly embarrassing moment on the felicitation podium post his stage 2 win where he leaned in for kiss with one of the podium girls. Much to the astonishment of the rider and people around, the lady awkwardly rejected Nibali’s little request and it took a complete 24 hours for the Italian rider to accomplish the coveted kiss from the lady.

Nibali impressed everybody with his great win on the route from Yorkshire to Sheffield on July 6. He received the maillot jaune & some flowers during the presentation ceremony but the champion looked no less than a foolish loser scratching his head is shock when the podium damsel pulled away while asked for a little celebratory kiss from the winner. It is a unusual occurrence since the winner generally “takes it all.”

It was Germany’s Marcel Kittel who won stage 3 of Tour de France this year and Cavendish’s absence was a hugely instrumental to his win. The 3rd stage stretching from Cambridge, marked the last stage for Tour France on the UL soil this year. The 4th stage has already commenced in France and 2014 Tour France would end on July 27.
