Mis-matched shoes… Just no. You’d never see Tom Boonen wearing mis-matched shoes and that speaks volumes.
In light of the recent news that the UCI technical committee intends to relax the draconian equipment rules of the Verbruggen/McQuaid administration that govern the hour record, Bradley Wggins has been spotted secretly testing some new aerodynamic equipment created by British Cycling’s infamous Secret Squirrel club.
The local Omani mattress told Pelican Velo Club, “I didn’t mean to knock Matti off, I just didn’t see him! I hope he’s ok, the doctors said his injuries are only superficial. Maybe I could have being paying more attention to where I was flying, but you just don’t expect cyclists to be out in the desert, you know? I think we’ve buried the hatchet now anyway; we spent the evening together and talked it all through. It was just bad luck I guess.”
Local authorities urge that those travelling in Oman 'take all precautions to make themselves visible, obey speed and traffic laws at all times, and to be considerate of other road users.'
Pelican Velo club tried contacting Breschel, but he was unavailable for comment.
‘Team Sky is owned by a company called Tour Racing Limited, which holds the team’s UCI ProTour licence. TRL is a holding company owned by BSkyB and on the board of TRL are two senior Sky executives and Ian Drake and Brian Cookson, the chief executive and president of British Cycling.’
Taylor Phinney is very cool, but that helmet is just so ugly… I know it’s been around for a while now, and that this has already been said many times and by many people, but I’m still not over it - it looks absolutely terrible, and it’s making Fernando Alonso feel awkward.
The integrated visor makes it look a little better (though not in this colour scheme), but that’s only really practical on the track, where you know you won’t need to take it off, and obviously if you have a sunglasses sponsor that’s a no-go…
Giro say the ‘Air Attack™ was a revelation in styling' - which may be true, but it wasn’t in a good way. I’m all for aero helmets, I understand they’re ‘fast’ (whatever that means), but what happened to style? Since when was that no longer a significant factor in cycling design? If the goal is speed at all costs, why don’t we all just ride recumbents?
To the passenger of the Audi driver who punched a cyclist in the face - your behaviour was reprehensible, blah blah blah…
But let me try and justify it anyway, as I don’t like cyclists either. Just who do they think they are anyway? These so called ‘people’, always claiming they’re just like you and me, but a little better - or so they’d like you to believe. They think they’re entitled to use they roads we all pay for, and entitled to protection of the law against dangerous behaviour from motorists (who pay loads more tax because of road tax and petrol duty - when that’s coming down hubby!? - and so definitely do pay for everything). They think they’re entitled to everything - just like benefit cheats!
Did you hear about that considerate, OAP, war-hero, charity worker motorist who was nearly killed by that arrogant lycra-lout last week whilst she was just trying to get from A-B in one piece? Luckily her well built, insured and licensed car protected her, and she got away with only minor shock. The cyclist on the other hand sustained life changing injuries to his legs and back, but wasn’t wearing a helmet so that’s to be expected. But anyway, in short, it was a horrendous for that poor motorist, and it’s exactly those kinds of cyclists I’d like to punch in the face.
Motorists are actually the ones saving the world because we’re contributing to jobs, tax and stuff. So get over yourself cyclists, or expect a punch in the face.
