I knew it!! You're Tom Boonen.
I do seem to have a sad obsession with wanting to look like him huh.

Thank you!!! My new sidis are so nice!!! Oh and I realise now that on Sunday when I rode right by a bunch around Rosebud that they must of laughed their heads off at me. At the time I thought they looked like a bunch of poofs all wearing exactly the same kit - all 25 (or so) of them!! But now i realise me with my white shoes, tryhard world champ top and ipod flaying around everywhere - they must of laughed so hard!!! Lucky I had the music up loud so I couldnt hear the abuse!!

public pools scare the hell out of me. i remember as a kid in primary school going to the local pool with school for lessons and one of my mates at the time did a bog in the pool!!!!!!!!!! Suffice to say he never did recover from that day...he copped **** (pardon the pun) for the rest of his days....

Or the pool scene from Caddyshack. One of my personal favourites.

I brought a pair of Sidi Zetas. Nice shoes, better than my Shimanos, which are ok in any case.

You can get away with wearing a trade team jersey. You might just get away with wearing a non-Aussie national champs jersey or national reps jersey. You might even be able to get away with wearing a Tour or Giro points leaders jersey, but you can never, under any circumstances, get away with wearing a yellow jersey or a rainbow jersey. Massive faux pas. It's like wearing a copy of a Brownlow medal down to the pub.

It will be about as big as a "shock" as when that dude from Savage Garden 'fessed up.

LOL. Was talking to a bloke the other day who swears a good mate of his knows the Thorpe family really well. He told me to bet my house on it!

BTW, unless you are world champ aren't white Sidis and rainbow jersies a bit 'la-di-da'?

What if you're a girl? Can you get away with it then? Not that I'm considering doing it or anything, just curious really.
