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...

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. )
