I don't get it

Nettavisen | Norwegian chiken stunt at Tour de France

Finally could Norwegians see one of their own in yellow at Tour de France as Bernt Myrer ran in front of Lance Armstrong all dressed in yellow, as a chicken no less.


According to the Norwegian paper VG, Myrer borrowed the costume from the Norwegian television channel NRK’s wardrobes, and took off to France. Millions of television viewers saw as the 28-year-old from Enebakk threw himself in front of Lance Armstrong and the rest of the Tour de France bikers.

Entertained tired Norwegians
Later Myrer entertained by Kurt-Asle Arvesen and Thor Hushovd, who both were having a hard time that day.

«I was running alongside Hushovd,» Myrer stated to VG. «He grinned, at least he didn’t growl. Arvesen held my friend’s hand.»
