Tour de France Stage 2 Winner Tries to Kiss Podium Girl, Gets Denied (Video)

vincenzo nibali denied kiss fail tour de france podium girl

Italian cyclist Vincenzo Nibali isn’t the favorite to win the 2014 Tour de France. But he’s definitely got a chance, and winning Stage 2 of the venerable month-long cycling race on Sunday was a good start.

Unfortunately, it was all downhill for Nibali once he took to the winner’s podium to receive the yellow jersey. Or maybe I should say it was all uphill, since downhill is a good thing in cycling, and what happened to poor Vincenzo was definitely not a good thing.

You see, after getting his victory flowers on Sunday, Nibali locked eyes with the hot podium girl standing next to him, and that brief moment of eye contact gave him the impression that he’d been ok’d for a little victory smooch. But he had not been ok’d for the victory smooch. So when he went for it, he was denied. And it was awkward as hell.

Take a look:

Okay, internet. Let’s see you turn this into a #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave meme.
