The Jurassic Park star takes time to take aero advice at Specialized's 'Win Tunnel'

In non-Tour de France related news, cyclists who also happen to be fans of Hollywood classics Jurassic Park, The Fly and Independence Day could be left exciting by a mysterious Instagram post.

Leader of Innovation and Engineering at American bike brand Specialized, Chris Yu, posted a selfie with actor Jeff Goldblum at the brand's California HQ.

The 66-year-old Jurassic Park star was in a full skinsuit and Specialized S-Works Evade II helmet posing for the photo in Specialized's own 'Win Tunnel', the aerodynamic testing ground of all its top-end race bikes.

Yu was particularly coy in revealing what Goldblum was doing with the brand posting the short caption 'Must go faster!! #aeroiseverything' alongside the photo.

Goldblum's presence at Specialized's wind tunnel could well be part of an acting role but, it's got many on the internet dreaming that one of the biggest cult actors of the past 30 years could in fact be a road cyclist and his visit to Specialized's wind tunnel was in a quest to find 'imperfections' in his position.

He would join the likes of Orlando Bloom, Patrick Demsey and Jake Gyllenhaal as some of the Hollywood high flyers who share a passion for road cycling. 

It has also got plenty of eager social media users adjusting Goldblum's iconic movie quotes to give them a cycling twist and some of them are inspired genius.

Our personal favourite so far being 'Man creates bikes. Man destroys bikes. Man creates car. Car destroys man. Car creates bikes.'
