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

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

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

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...

One area where we can all agree that the Hinc surpassed Lance.

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