    For this one, I go hardcopy. May need two issues to be on the safe side (posterity, etc - you know the sort of thing).
    Making a cup of coffee is like making love to a beautiful woman. It's got to be hot. You've got to take your time. You've got to stir... gently and firmly. You've got to grind your beans until they squeak.
    And then you put in the milk.

    If someone threw a load of money at me for a day's work to whip my top off I'd go for it, World Champion or not.

    I think it's a disgrace, there are far more soft title opportunities for the girls to parade their pants in whilst the lads are limited to the occasional Radio Times cover. Come on UCI play fair.
    If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers.

    I don't really see this sort of thing as being demeaning. It's certainly something she's happy with doing.

    In addition, she's not just featured in FHM, she's on the cover. That's pretty good exposure (pardon the pun) for cycling as well as her. The more mainstream cycling becomes, the greater the chance of casual observers taking more seriously. That can't be a bad thing, right?

    From what I can see of the pictures in this thread, they're some of the better ones of her too.

    I think I will have to buy a copy and study the images before I am prepared to say whether they're demeaning or not.

    It's only fair :twisted:

    If someone wanted to throw money at me to do naked photoshoots I'd have them sectioned under the mental health act.

    That should be dropping onto my doormat tomorrow, if the postie don't get hold of her first.

    A word of warning to those who may be tempted to scan and post the images, DON'T, FHM are red hot on their images not being posted on public access forums on the internet, they have been known to take action on sites that have and had them closed down.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Most people just donate money to charity or blood to a blood bank. I guess you have to have your hobbies. :lol:

    Will - you're a student. Surely one of your housemates has already bought it, probably by the time you're reading this...

    In that case, I would suggest you buy a copy for each of them. That way - when they throw the magazine back at you - you'll be showered by images of Vicky P.*

    *It only looks like two sentences, but so much editing went into that to try to avoid looking like the sexist pig it appears I actually am.

    We know that - but how would you propose being showered by images of Vicky P with your laptop. Ok, you can slide your face against the screen, but IMO that's not a sustainable strategy. You could leave the computer on the pillow next to you so she's there when you wake up, but far better to cut out the pics and lay them there instead.

    Original hardcopy - that's the way to go. You get the magazine smell too.

    I used to see her and speak to her at the Velodrome. It's amazing what retouching and makeup can do. She doesn't look anything like that in person. Ok - maybe a LITTLE like that. :D
