The Tour de France is by no means an easy task.

Continuous peddling in sometimes uncomfortable weather conditions will weigh down on any cyclist. And the place they’re likely to feel it the most is in their legs.

One such peddler is Pawel Poljanski.

After sixteen stages I think my legs look little tired ? #tourdefrance

The polish rider shared a picture of his overworked legs after a strenuous 16 stages in this year’s race.

“After sixteen stages I think my legs look little tired,” he captioned the post.

It’s been 68 hours of nonstop cycling with more than 2 830km covered by the sportsman, so we quite agree – a break is definitely needed.

Unfortunately for Pawel, who currently sits in 75th place, there are still five stages to go in this year’s Tour de France. So that’s another 711, 33km to cover.

Go get ‘em, Champ.

Ciao Rafa. See you in Vuelta! #live #cycling A post shared by Pawel Poljanski (@p.poljanski) on
