A person filming the Tour de France from the sidelines had his camera knocked from his hand. Before he could risk bending over to pick it up with the cyclists speeding by him, one of the competitors nabbed it and took it for a ride instead.

The YouTube user going by orangesokz identified the person who picked up the camera as Team Europcar cyclist Kevin Reza.

According to Cycling Weekly, the man retrieved his camera and the footage from the Europcar team after Reza gave them the device while still en route.

In the comments, Reza called himself a "massive cycling fan."

Italy's VincenzoNibali ended up winning the Tour de France, becoming the first Italian to win the race in 16 years. The 29-year-old Sicilian, who called himself "a flag-bearer of anti-doping" during the race, finished in the main pack behind Marcel Kittel, who won Sunday's Stage 21 in a sprint finish.
