A newcomer in Kazakhstan's Astana Pro cycling team had quite a funny rite of passage, Vesti.kz reports.
Colombian cyclist Miguel Angel Lopez, Winner of the Tour de l'Avenir 2014, had to wear a female dress during lunch in the Spanish Calpe. 20-year-old Lopez, who is known as Superman Lopez, said a toast in the light-blue dress, raising a glass of water.

Apparently, pranks for newcomers are quite a tradition in cycling teams.
