No mention if they're bringing the independent laydeez with them. Mr Ball, if you're reading this you know it makes sense.

    Dammit, I may be away that day.

    I wanted to meet Tyler to tell him I believe.

    I thought a pharmacy like boots would have been more appropriate or transfusion unit of a NHS hospital. :(

    They have independent anti-doping just like Columbia, Garmin, CSC and Astana you know.

    You know what's really wrong...after reading that, I really want a "london rocks" kit :oops:

    Hopefully they'll sell some Trucker Hats, the one piece of rock racing kit i can almost justify buying....until they reveal postage from America is 50 dowa :twisted:

    Rock Racing & Harrods .

    Over-priced, over-rated, tacky, full of shady characters and run by an absolute loon. The other is a cycling team.

    An inspired match.

    So who's going to buy "a limited edition Harrods Team Kit...designed specifically for the London store in their signature green and gold colors."

    And should I hate them and let their tyres down?

    I wonder if LPR are putting in an appearance at Harvey Nicks?

    LPR make brakes, not poncey denims. They'll be doing a photoshoot at your local Quik-Fit.

    I wouldn't mind going to check them out and getting a shirt or two.. Just because they are cooler then all of you doesn't mean they suck :o

    lol and I hardly think they will bring the rock girls from the U.S when they can get some skanky uk trash for a few quid.. all they have gotta do is stand around and look pretty and perform sexual favours on request..

    Thats the sort of "shop local" attitude that leads to Kerry Katona. The Rock Racing girls seem to carry off the perma-tanned hooker look with a little more aplomb.

    Given that over the years we have had Robert Millar, Shelley Verses and Paul Scott of ACE , among others, on the forum, what are the chances of getting one of the the Rock girls posting here ( and NOT for £2.20/min, network charges may apply).

    (Even if it did happen, I'd have the nagging doubt that it might turn out to be Howard P. under another of his pseudonyms)

    I'd trade them all in for a bit of Vicky P. I'm jealous because since the Olympics the number of people oggling her has increased sevenfold :(

    Oooooo! A skull. That's so tough and scary :roll:

    Still, the use of just three colours is better than Euro-dayglo kits peddling laminate flooring or bottled gas.

    Well do you know what I got for my birthday last week?

    Harrods used to sponsor a UK-based pro squad some years ago, which, as far as I recall, sank without trace after about a season.

    Harrods-bashing? There must be an MI5/Royal Family conspiracy involved in that post! You are Prince Philip, and I claim my £5 (Continued on pages 3-25 of the Daily Express)!

    Yep harrods have had a UK based pro team in the past, think John Tanner rode for them but could be wrong. Anyone good on their history of 90's UK elite teams on here?
  • Know that Harrods 1998 line up had Gordon MacCauley, Matt Stephens and Chris Lillywhite in it and was managed by Sid Barras. Am sure Kevin Dawson rode for them the following year, as I seem to remember him in a Harrods kit.

    Damn, one has been caught out. Here, have some of that bloody money stuff with a picture of ones wife and don't bother me again. One has contacts who can give a commoner given a damn good thrashing....
