Cyclist Celebrates Victory A Lap Too Soon

Ryder Hesjedal's first name is the most unironic in professional cycling. His nickname is Weight of a Nation. Now he gets to be known as That Guy Who Celebrated Too Soon.

Hesjedal thought he had Wednesday's Stage 1 of the Tour of Alberta in the bag. Watch how he makes his move, coasts across the finish line, and raises his arms in triumph. Then watch how he realizes there was still one more lap to go. He came in 19th.
