    Ugly Sun Glasses

    Is there a competition for the gaudiest sun glasses this year? If you can win a stage I guess youcan wear any style but some of the sunglasses are just butt ugly to me.

    Saturday time trial should have a different yellow jersey leader at the end.

    Do DS count in this comp. Because I think the Matt White may take it.

    I like the new racing jackets much better than the old ones though
    When in doubt, style it out.

    How to post full size pictures

    I like Kohl's sunglasses-- like goggles. They kind of have that early-days-of-the-Tour-de-France look to them.

    Maybe they should add rhinestones.

    I haven't paid to much attention to glasses this year. However some images that are still burnt in my memory are from what Cipollini wore. For a fashion conscious Italian he really wore some ugly as$ glasses.




    But if I was being paid, I guess I'd be wearing them too

    yes....but Cippo likely also wore these during his post-race trist with his fashion model de jour. Cippo = the man!

    that's just Hincapie. he's always worn the worst looking eyewear, and if he changed and wore something nice looking, i'm sure people would wonder why. honestly, i doubt some people would even recognize him...

    I highly doubt he gets any women to "call him" when he makes that face.

    I wonder if he was looking at Bob Stapleton at the time?
