    I wonder why he was wearing a mouth guard in addition to a helmet...

    The mouth guard is to keep his brain from falling out in accidents like that. He's got that whole BB in a box car thing going on there.

    And I like how the article ends with this...

    And Kerry fell last week. Is this election going to come down to a comparison of who's got the best bike handling skills?

    A mouth guard???? Who has ever worn a mouth guard for a bike ride???

    Sounds fishy to me.

    I think Bush and Kerry should race a sprint to the Washington city limits and the winner gets president. Sure, why not.

    Better to wear a mouth guard and to be safe then to be at a public speaking with his two front teeth knocked out. Not good when it comes time for that photo with the king of Jordan, or Englands PM Tony Blair etc. Naw just not a good look.

    I bet the Pres read all the posts regarding Kerry's riding skills on this board. He couldn't be outdone but should have remembered the Segway incident... This time no bush seemed to be there to prevent scratches. At least Bush is now acknowledging the recent polls... tumbling!!!

    I just emailed CNN to ask if the mouthguard thing was a misunderstanding between the spokesman and reporter or if it was not, why was Bush wearing a mouthguard.

    Let's see if they answer.

    He should've worn a full faced helmet along with full padding on the body. I know it sounds excessive but he's not the best mountain biker in the world and he is the president of the USA afterall.

    Heres a photo of Kerry on his bike, when I zoomed the photo it looked like a Serrotta head badge, and he has his name on the down tube. Can any one find one of Bush on his?
