GIF: Mascot chasing Joaquim Rodriguez is nightmare fuel

By Brian Stubits | CBSSports.com

There's nothing quite like a mountain stage at the Tour de France. Sure, the racing is exciting with the attacks and counter attacks being made to decide the fate of the Yellow Jersey but what really makes them great are the fans on the sides of the road.

Or the ... pink bottles? It's no wonder Joaquim Rodriguez was the first rider atop the penultimate climb of Monday's Stage 10; wouldn't you pedal as fast as you could to get away from the nightmare fuel that was this ... thing? This might not be the best way to advertise your product, then again we noticed it.

Maybe if it been able to run behind Rodriguez the whole way, he would have been able to hold off Vincenzo Nibali and the other riders in the final kilometers. Then again, he probably wouldn't be able to sleep Monday night either.
