  • Hmm, he could be. Looks like he's just broken wind to me.

    Ex world champs can wear the stripes on their sleeves when riding their championship discipline for all eternity if they want to. (e.g. Cav can wear stripes in the Madison and on the road, but not in TTs.)
  • Is that Boonen throwing up the v's in the background? Id give alot to be photobombed by Tom Boonen!

    I thought Boonen was the one on the right looking embarrassed...

    Nah, Boonen's the one doing the bombing.

    He's not really flicking the Vs, he's doing the bunny ears. Like this...

    But would you really wear it on a training ride? Really?


    Yeah, I would too.

    Yeah, I would too.

    He's contracted to wear that kit whenever he goes out on a bicycle.

    That would kinda put you off popping out to get a pint of milk on the bike.

    I think I would too! I'd like to think I'd keep myself closer to race weight than Cav's picture suggests, though. After all, a stomach that size doesn't appear without a lot of work. He must be knocking on two stone overweight as he looks porky for a normal person. (Caveat for Cav's lawyers - I'm only going on the picture, so I'm not saying he's actually porky, just that he looks it!)

    I think the stripes are a powerful influence on a rider. Chris Hoy rode the 2006 Etape du Tour in his World Champion's jersey. Unfortunately, as this was for the kilo, by his own admissions, he felt a bit silly grovelling up Alpe D'Huez!

    Somehow I doubt Cav rides one of these:

    Hey, just poiting out that Pross is right!
  • He might be world champ at eating pies?

    Actually according to Wikipedia that is Neil Collier, crowned in Harry's Bar, Wigan in 2010 (there hasn't been a championships since).

    None. I don't really like pies.

    But in Cardiff Clark's Pies are the pie of choice.

    Cave is a cyclist (of sorts).

    Edit: That'll teach the to post before reading through the thread.
    “Road racing was over and the UCI had banned my riding positions on the track, so it was like ‘Jings, crivvens, help ma Boab, what do I do now? I know, I’ll go away and be depressed for 10 years’.”

    Our Cav, feeling down on his luck,
    Flashed his eyes, at the off-season pies
    Thus solving the riddle: to skittle the Kittel
    You just need to ride fst as fck
