Chris Horner is the bomb, any pro tour rider who rides cyclocross and spends time talking to his peeps is more than okay in my books.

erader is also the bomb! Man hard to believe that Horner is like 35 years old. He looks like a kid. Oh wait, he is a kid compared to me.

Yes I always wanted a good single picture of Horner for a desktop pic and I could never find one I liked. Thanks again Ed.

Horner always seems awesome in the media but from what I hear from guys who ride with him, he's kind of a terrible guy. He's apparently alientated a lot of the people who were around when he was up and coming.

I have interviewed Horner many times over the years and had several meals with him. He is funny, pleasant, thoughtful and has a love for the sport that few people can dream of. A lot of people didn't like what he said when he went back to Europe after winning everything that matters in the US. But that's just misplaced patriotism. Racing is better in Europe. Anyone who doesn't believe that is looking at the world through red, white and blue colored glasses.
