    They do them at the post-Tour crits as well.

    Given his nature, one would think Cadel Evans would make a killing at this sort of thing...

    There are a couple of pretty heavy hitters in that race, by the way.

    Niko Eeckhout, and Philippe Gilbert.

    From the ones I've seen, it seems like the guy with the fattest driver always wins.

    I wonder how the riders select their drivers? Anyone?

    There used to be a semi-classic, was is Paris-Tours? I remember it was some crazy-long distance, and part of the race was with derny's, part without.

    I hate to say it, but I found that to be incredibly boring to watch.

    Thanks for confirming the presence of Gilbert. I figured it had to be him due to his build and some hot blonde with a FdJ jacket in the opening few seconds. And Eeckhout was the Topsport rider? Wasn't he a U23 Belgian National champion?
