A woman’s video clip of her high-fiving a police motorcyclist when the Tour de France visited Sheffield has won a competition.
Carli Burnham’s clip, taken before elite cyclists rode along the race route on Penistone Road just below Wadsley Bridge, was one of over 50 entries into the contest, which asked people watching the first three race stages to share clips of their experience.
It has now been made into a commemorative film featuring clips from 15 locations across Yorkshire.
Carli said: “It was incredible to see the Tour de France go straight past my house and I will remember it forever – even though it all happened so quickly!
“We spent hours waiting for the riders and I thought it would be fun to share my video. It was such a simple clip so I’m really excited to have won!”
Carli has won a GoPro HERO3 camera, as well as a Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone, for taking the top spot from website mobiles.co.uk.
Marketing manager Jay Karsandas said: “Carli’s footage in particular shows the human side of the race, and it’s things like this that we wanted to capture in the film – regardless of shaky footage or out-of-focus shots.”
