    Bad Luck

    Does this really exist in racing? Have you ever ridden with someone who, although a skillful rider, was consistently in the wrong place at the wrong time? Always on the wheel of the guy who overlapped and took 5 guys down? Or outside the dude who blew a tire in mid turn? For lack of a better term a Sh** Magnet? Examples in the Pro Peloton?

    Seems lately Freddy Rodriguez has had nothing but problems.

    Everything from his team mates late flights, broken bikes, or no team car. Sting of bad luck for the past few months.

    For the past few years, Cadel Evans keeps crashing and breaking his collar bones whenever there is a big race coming up.
