    What Tour rider are you most similar to?

    It's a fun thing to think about, different riding styles and all. No one's allowed to say Lance. Well, unless that's your name.
    The Amazon link to my new favorite book: THE ART OF BICYCLING: A TREASURY OF POEMS (Breakaway Books; June 2005)

    Just got this as a gift, and can't stop reading it. The first ever collection of verse about cycling -- over 200 total, with photos throughout. There's even a poem by Pantani himself.

    the one who walks up the climbing stages, and then flys off the side of the road due to excessive speed on the downhills.

    hahahaha Thats awesome gastro

    For me lance. Simply because he seems to be the only one that rides dirt well. But even then, he doesn't ride what I enjoy so it barely fits there too

    Who is the guy trailing along at the very back, barely able to hang on, and wondering every day if this might be the day he misses the cut-off time?

    Kick @$$!

    Two girls actually told me just last week that I look like you know who. They didn't even know that I rode, much less on a Trek.

    More realistically though, is there anybody who is known for looking for rough spots in the road just for the exhiliration of flowing through them or who wastes ridiculous amounts of energy burning people on sharp corners only to get blown by again on the next climb? That'd be me.

    I am the guy who drops out in the 9th stage because of "overall fatigue". (and probably crashed two or three times along the way)
    Just your average club rider... :)

    Hmm, Hinault, superficially anyway, I have a sort of never say die craziness, I'm not very tall, and my legs build big muscles when I ride enough, and my arms too a bit.

    The Bernard Hinault of 1985, or Hinault of 2005? There's at least 75 lbs more of him to love these days.

    Are any of the riders on "Le Tour" riding a hardtail mountain bike with slicks and a homebrew 20 watt light system that weighs about 6 pounds..... and making regular stops at Subway, Starbucks, and Krispy Kreme?.... that would be the one I resemble

    That guy that missed the start of each leg due to a hangover. Sometimes seen as guy trying to run with Lance Armstrong. Not to confused with the runner guy wearing afro wig and speedo.

    Hehe, my max downhill is just a smidgen over the average for the latest TT they had...
    My max on flats is probably not even close to their speeds uphill...

    Eddy's dropped a bunch of weight, he's riding again almost daily, he apparently gained weight due to medications and perhaps some surgery. But these days the Cannibal is back!

    I didn't know Hinault gained a lot of weight, I'd have to guess the 1985 version because that's about all the heavy I get.

    hmm...don't look like the riders, do not look like a podium girl (too old, but then again--any girl over 16 would be )
    That leaves: looking like Paolo Bettini's Mom (assuming, of course that she needs to lose 25lbs and her nose is somewhat smaller)...
