Mikel Landa has jokingly taken an axe to his home trainer, venting his frustration at being in lockdown and unable to train on the open roads. 

The Basque rider posted a short video on Twitter of him approaching his home trainer with an axe. He looks angrily at the camera and then swings the axe. The video does not show Landa destroying the home trainer, with footage of a funeral celebration edited into the video, seeming to symbolise the funeral of the home trainer.
