Team presentation.

Looks like the village team sponsored by the butchers :)

no white bar tape either!

    I'm adopting these boys for the Tour. They have the full support of the Peril. Who's with me?

    B*ll*cks... it should have been MTN... and they're wearing white shorts... ;)
  • I'm in - gotta back plucky Delaplace - youngest in the Tour 2011 - 6 foot and 65 kg. I think he's middle back row

    Plucky routine 6 man break suddenly turns in his favour as a lumpy finish and crosswinds breaks the pelotons momentum...somehow he digs the deepest he has ever been into the suitcase of courage, in fact he's removed the lining....the favourite in the break attacks at 4 km but somehow he holds on in there and drops him with 400 m to go crossing the line with his last pedal stroke.

    superb! to misquote Cliff richard "one guy one girl we're on a summer holiday!"

    Come on Pro Race faithful let's get behind these guys. I'm sure Ben Stiller will make a flick about it and also it's a chance for us all to reduce our S-K-Y reference percentage. Win win!

    EDIT SGS is in, and Dish Dash (when he's over the shorts crisis)

    Given that Breton and Cornish people are basically the same - i am of course in!

    I wish them all the best, but have to say that I can't get very enthusiastic about those French minor teams who get a ride in the TdF purely because of their nationality without having to show anything in terms of results or effort to get there. I fully understand why ASO waves them through, but it doesn't make me sympathetic towards them.

    do we need to wear stripey jumpers to cheer them on?

    I read all about that in a restaurant in Brittany many years ago. I'm also sure it said they were pro monarchy as in our Queen. I might have been on a bit of a drug trip at the time though, I'd just had moules and frites.

    Can someon get FF on speed dial for team pictures

    I will not be supporting them just because they are out of their depth but will support them if they ride courageously all the while hoping I could have seen Linus racing.

  • Do you have to have brown hair, lack a razor and have access to an overabundance of hair gel to be in this team?

    If so, it's my kind of team!* :D

    *Based on nothing more than a set of classifications I just totally made up for the purpose of this thread only.

    Ah Frenchie I thought you wouldn't be supporting them for the unsettling asymmetry of those two pairs of black trainers in the front row there. I must say I am finding the lack of attention to detail there very troubling. Whatever anyone does don't show this picture to Ride on Time I fear what might happen.

    BigMat never died - they're still going at Conti level.

    Great photos FF. Hopefully they'll throw caution to the wind and we'll see some gallant riding and panache.

    Death or glory from these boys come on!!
