I thought I would start this thread because I was lucky enough to catch this guy at the Giro prolog. You all know him - he is at every major tour stage.

I think he must just love racing, and makes some money there by having people pose with him for a little bit of lucre. He travels in a big van, towing a huge bicycle made of pipe - it stands about three meters high.

Anyway, he is the first in this thread. But just wait for the next one!

Cheers...Gary

Giant had about ten people on their bikes riding in the caravan. It took a while for me to understand what my wife meant when she kept saying "it's body paint". It was.

Cheers...Gary

This made me think of the bike names thread. I would name her bike Aethenoth.
