Awesome cycling vid

http://thebroadbandracer.com/fly.asp...&layout=player

From Pez:
TheBroadbandRacer.com has a fantastic video diary from CSC's Christian Vandevelde from California from CSC's training camp in California in February. The team went to Famous Dave's for dinner following an EIGHT hour ride, and needless to say, they were ready to eat...and drink beer...and have fun. Jens Voigt shows that, not only is he a champion on the bike, but you can't touch him eating either: check...it...OUT.

Awesome might be pushing it a bit.

Mildly entertaining - if you consider a video of a bunch of drunk men entertaining - is probably the more appropriate description.

Anybody else notice most professional cyclists are either complete dunces or incredibly eccentric?

Pretty funny. Reminds me of our H.S. basketball trip to the state finals, where I ate 5 Big Macs (each in one bite) until they stopped buying them for me. Jens can pack it down. Sheesh.

Dude, I got 5 free big macs.

Who says teenage boys are gross? You know how it is though -- I was 6'4" and 160, could hit my elbow on the hoop, and couldn't gain weight to save my life. Oh to be 17 again... well, parts of it were good...
