Dang, why does he have to look so constipated! This would be a perfect before picture for Metamucil...

Seriously, though. Was this pic taken the day he won the stage? That's what it looks like to me.

Koffee, you took the words right out of my mouth on the Metamucil thing.

Guess he just was not happy with the padding that came with the shorts.

I probably look like this when I climb a hill with maybe one-quarter the gradient covering one-tenth the length, and having ridden maybe one-tenth the distance to get to this point, and accumulating perhaps one-one-hundredth of the miles in the week leading up to this.

Whatever happens in the final weekend of the TdF, Mr. Hamilton has certainly earned my respect! Broken clavicles are no fun (been there, done that, off the bike for 2 weeks).

What sucks for fameous pics is that they always take your pic and get the worst possible angle and look on your face. What's up with that?

You people should look so good during the athletic equivalent of beating yourselves 'bout the body with a mallet! I have to check my pulse just looking at this guy. Go Tyler!

I think the original picture truly shows his determination and the suffering he is willing to go thru. It is an inspiration to me. Thanks for posting it.

Go Tyler.

To answer an earlier question: Yes. That was the day he won the stage.

Looks like some of the poor white guys I see at dance clubs.

As far as I'm concerned, anybody who is going through the amount of pain he is can put any look on his face that he wants.
