    Pro cycling Babe-i-tude

    Who are the finest examples of babe-itude in pro cycling? This doesn't just apply to the women, men can be babes, too, I'm told -- though I don't think I'm qualified to judge? But who are the major babes?

    I'm kind of partial to Rasa and Jolanta Polikeviciute -- they're twins, so there's a toss-up -- as well as Silvia Parietti and Lesley Tomlinson. I would be thrilled to ride in their draft, even though i don't delude myself that I could hold their wheels for more than a few seconds... if that...
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    Here's one from the World Championships. That's Rasa Polikeviciute with her hand up:



    Unfortunately, not all her pictures are great. Like most redheads, she doesn't always come out on film as well as she does on video. Same for Lesley Tomlinson -- also a redhead -- though there is a calendar photo of her somewhere that is quite something.

    I'm looking for Silvia Parietti's picture. Since Gas Sport got a new sponsor, I haven't been able to find their Web site...

    LAdies? Any contributions?

    I've got to argue over Anne Caroline. Definitely NOT HOT!

    Missie the Missile - Too Freaky for me, but if you dig that, she's all yours.

    Sari - yeah, she's hot!

    I personally like: oh crap, I can't think of her name. She used to race DH for Specialized, now races for Yeti. Come on guys help me out! Tara Llanes! That's it!

    I don't have a pic, but I've always liked her!

    There are more, but I'm name brain dead today!

    Yep, that's her, I love her smile! Plus she rides better than most guys I know (a whole lot better than me!). Maybe she could give me private lessons!

    So, is Corine Dorland really a pro, or is she kind of the Anna Kournikova of mountain biking?

    Consistent top-10 finishes, not bad. I stand corrected.

    Alison is one of my favorites also...mostly because she rode for GT

    I actually got to see her ride in the Cyclocross Nationals here in KC in 2000, that was a great experience.

    Velocipedio,

    You have like, hit a gusher.

    There is some serious babitude in this thread!

    (I have searched the web desperately for a French woman cycling champion from about 100 years ago, but to no avail...her name eludes me. All I remember is her photograph on her bike in black bloomers and cute curly black hair. )

    :thumbup:
