You know what, I know we have to hate them because of their riders and their history and their dubious ownership etc. etc.

But the fact is that Cipo is cool and their kit is cool and aaarrrrgggggggggghhhhhhh I have signed up for the newsletter on their website

Am I beyond help?

  • I think you are clearly beyond help. Now, where do I sign up for that newsletter???

    I tried to buy last years top which was even better, red and black, but i couldn't find it for sale anywhere. I really wanna wear it, but i feel i can't because a the owner is complete d*ck and b because of who he's signed. Why did he do it, last year they were the bad boys and that was great, tis year they are def the 'bad boys'.

    Sorry, bad joke. One of Rock Racing's riders (Kayle Leogrande) is well known for his tattoos (amongst other things, ahem).

    Rock Racing are about as cool as a Halfords £99 full sus MTB with a chav in white trainers on it. With a Burberry cap. How can a cycling team which thinks that their six Cadillac Escalades are one of their big selling points ever be cool? They're a pathetic bunch of tossers. If you had Michael Ball and Tyler Hamilton in a sinking hot air balloon you'd just throw them both out, regardless. Read their home page to see a demonstration of how to work so hard (and so badly) to be cool as to render yourself as cool as yesterday's stool, still floating in the bowl. The first line of drivel on their 'About' page even claims that they have 'flare and edge'.

    Weeping dicks. :roll:

    <h6>What\'s the point of going out? We\'re just going to end up back here anyway</h6>
  • They've got a whacking great two page ad right near the front of this months Procycling too.

    Doesn't appear to be advertising anything other than the team itself. Big logo and then it large letters HERE TO STAY

    Hmmm yes, but to borrow a Willie Nelson song, how long is forever?

    Why wait till it's sinking?

    Hypocrisy is only a bad thing in other people.

    My copy arrived today and I saw that. And thought "oh f***, I hope not" followed by "so said the Argies when they invaded the Falklands" :wink:

    Well if they're gonna sink then maybe the jerseys will become collectables :shock: I really want one but dont wanna support the team lol

    lol @ Eurostar - when I read the word drivel - I nearly fell out of my chair.. It reminded me of my dad.. he is like 70 or something.. He would probably say the same thing as you about the rock racing team and its Martian Mean Green Kit - I would probably just say to him that its not a sign of the times, just a sign of different tastes.. He would probably disagree and say its a sign of the times.. Still laughing at that word tho

    Cadillac are one of their sponsors, so guess what they are going to use as promo vehicles
