I have found only two companies that make jerseys for tall men, Aerotech and Hill Killer. So here I am at 6’6” tall with one jersey that has “AERO” in big letters on it, and another proclaiming “Hill Killer”, and I am neither.
The other day a Marco Pantani wannabe said to me “hill killer, eh?” I replied that was just the name given me by the media. Because of where I hid the bodies. No smile. He left quickly!

As a Clyde, I've been known to tell people to ride hills behind me... "I'll flatten it out a little for you."

Who in their right mind would wanna be a disgraced professional cyclist who died alone in a hotel room from a drug overdose?

BTW...I had the pleasure of having Pantani pass me going in the opposite direction while I was riding to at stage finish at the Bianchi factory during the '95 Giro. He was sitting out the tour that year after getting injured during training.
