It’s old news apparently , but I just came across this story about a stray dog that completed a 1700km journey across China after joining a cycle trip from Sichuan province to Tibet.

The dog, nicknamed “Xiaosa”, joined the cyclists after one of them gave him food.

He ran with them for 20 days, covering up to 60km a day, and climbing 12 mountains of up to 10,000 ft above sea level. Oh boy!

Cyclist Xiao Yong started a blog about Xiaosa’s adventures, which had attracted around 40,000 fans by the end of the race.

Maybe should have named him Froomeeee!
