    Phil & Paul Time Trial Bingo

    I'm having folks over Saturday morning for Breakfast at the Tour, to watch the time trial. I would like to put together a game of Phil & Paul Time Trial Bingo, so I need about 25 to 30 Phil-and-Paulisms that are appropriate for a time trial. Suggestions?

    So far:
    Suitcase of courage
    Beast of a man
    He must not panic at a time like this
    Tapping out a rhythm
    Around about
    Road furniture
    He's all over the machine
    In a spot of bother
    Dare I say it
    Dancing on the pedals
    On the rivet
    Look at his face
    Legs must be screaming

    EDIT:
    Added from replies:
    Big diesel engine
    Grippy
    Going a bit pear-shaped
    Ride of his life
    Lost his bottle
    Completely and utterly
    Massive gear
    Weight of the yellow jersey
    Raising/turning a pedal in anger
    Cat amongst the pigeons
    Violent effort
    Before the storm
    Skin of his shorts
    Little (name) [ex: Sammy Dumoulin, Damiano Cunego]
    Big (name) [ex: George Hincapie, Jens Voigt]

    "Is that Stephen Roche? It is Stephen Roche!"

    That should be an automatic win.

    "Raising a pedal in anger"
    My mom found this old poem/essay that I wrote in 3rd grade.

    "If I was in charge of the world there would be no school and no bedtime. Bikes would be free, and you would get to race on them everyday. There would be no sisters and no brothers to tie up race money. Everyone would have just one kid, and nothing would cost money, for me at least."
