@thimhaan

Those photos really have a mannequinn-skin quality to them. Looking at the thumbnails I actually thought you had posted joke images of mannequinns set up en masse in a bike race pose.

From a hilly 62 km RR last weekend. I'm trying to break away from the group coming over the top of a short hill, with about 10 km of racing to go. I got about 500m on the pack, and held it for 2-3 km, but eventually got reeled back in and finished in the pack.

Is that a tattoo of Imelda Marcos on your calf?

German Prime Minister Angela Merkel?

Audrey Hepburn?

LL Cool J?

We can't tell from the picture...

AT&T Downtown Crit 6/16/07. I wasn't suffering other than waiting for the guy on my wheel there (Korioth) to attack so I could go with him. Cypress, any critique on my minor Doom Mode there? Of course, Botto's going to love the legs

EDIT: anyone else think the Hotel San Jose rider looks like Dr. Pete a bit?

Pothole turned down my bars. Pulled out to fix it and they denied me a free lap. Felt great though.

I do believe I lent you my pen to sign your release form in the registration line.

Good times!

You could have had "Australia" relegated for what he did.
