Photo caption contest - (featuring one of our own) :)

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Did anyone else notice the similarity between that photo and 2Rodies' avatar? Has anyone ever seen him with "The Devil" (as seen at the Tour)? Could they be the same person???

Note the flames on the uniform, too. Virtual proof that 2Rodies is, in fact, "The Devil".

I have learned to accept my male pattern baldness and just cut off the remaining hair. Besides the wife likes the shaved dome.


I want to thank everyone for the more or less tame roasting! That is the face of one pissed off guy (because of the flat) who is in a huge amount of pain! I have never dug so deep and honestly didn't know that I could, I learned more about what I could do on bike in that race than in all of my previous 17 years of cycling combined.

You tell 'em! I actually have less hair than 2Roadies. Its more aerdynamic...yeah. I agree, no comb overs here. When it starts going, just whack it off. I have to wear something under my helmet though or I can get funny tan lines.

Hey - did you guys make it back ok? Carl said you had one heck of a wicked flat. Nobody was really stopping at the normal regrouping points. What's up with that?
