Ed, you’re doing an amazing service to Bike Forums. I salute you.

But I have to ask you to give us a little more about the twelve-point horny guy --- what’s his deal?

there are two versions of the 70-200L f4. i have the newer image stabilized version which is said to be canon's sharpest zoom and perhaps the sharpest zoom made by anyone.

Great phots, and in spite of myself I really like the Rock Racing kit. Or maybe it's just seeing Cipo back on a bike.

The 2nd shot of the Toyota rider really captures it. I can feel it in my gut just sitting here.

you see the driver of the team car watching vogels. what you don't see is vogels hanging onto a "bottle" and getting a tow up the hill .

I'm sure he's just making REALLY sure he has the bottle firmly in his grasp before letting go - this can take quite some time
