    You're way out of the loop. You've heard of knickers, right? Those are the very latest
    in shin warmers. Get current man. Were you born and raised in a cave? :wink::wink:

    At least they're now white. Last pic I saw he had black socks on. Now that is a fashion crime :lol:

    A bit like flares&flyaway collars,in 20yrs we'll be rolling around looking at pictures like this.I've seen people at club events looking far worse,at least the MAN still commands the upmost respect whatever he's wearing.

    Triathletes will flock to the stores to get a pair. After all they are tri specific.

    Those are some ugly, stupid looking shoes. His teeth are way to big for his head. Is this a common triathelope affliction? Is that a fanny pack I see or a heart rate monitor positioned just a little low and on the wrong side of the body? And what's with the death grip on the bars?

    I like this game.

    Right, we'll take a top-down approach:

    Helmet - backwards, and not white.

    Eyebrows - Making a bid for freedom.

    Glasses - inside helmet straps.

    Teeth - as mentioned previously.

    Top - sleeveless.

    Wrist - LiveSTRONG bracelet

    Wrist - is that one of those junk magnetic "wellbeing" bracelets Wiggle are stocking!?

    Hands - Deathgrip - probably part of the problem driving the eyebrows so far north.

    Waist - number belt :roll:

    Compression shorts - bet they're not bibs...

    Rear-mounted bottle carriers - empty - with his full bottle on the down tube!

    Saddle bag - looks floppy.

    Legs - shaved.

    Feet - no socks.

    They're 2XU endurance Tri shorts, no compression in those...

    ... they're not bibs though for sure.

    Thats a fair old number of spacers he's got going on there!

    Zip open, and whats strapped to the toptube?

    I think it's an energy gel/bar, it seems to be common in herds of triantelopes for them to tape food to their bikes.

    I'd happily look as stupid as Hutch in that pic in return for his times (rather than looking worse with my own times!) :lol:

    Just another one to add.... (Although a bit more of an assumption)

    Comletely wrong gear. It doesn't look too downhill (if at all) and for some reason I just can't imagine him sitting on a decent cadence. must be sitting on 65-72 tops...

    This is what i think is driving eyebrows/brow sky high... over geared. Big time.

    :oops:
  • Ironman595Ironman595 Posts: 93
    Hence death grip....
  • Ironman595Ironman595 Posts: 93
    and his saddle height is 40-50mm too high... :lol:
  • AnonymousAnonymous Posts: 79,692
    Is the tongue of his right hand side shoe been pushed inside the shoe when he put them on ? He must have been in a rush after getting his helmet on just right. :D
