Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

He would know, since he married one of them. The Specialized Angel isn't too hard on the eyes.

Wow, he won't even put his arms around them, well, he probably CAN'T put his arm around the one to his left...
But he just throws his arms out, carefull not to touch them lest their ugliness rub off on him.

Look at it this way: When we look back and try to figure out why the Tour of California wen the way of the Coors Classic we can blame it on the podium.

So far it's looking like the Tour is going to be around for a while: http://www.amgentourofcalifornia.com..._02242006.html

"Organizers predict that the attendance figures indicate that the race is on track to set records for highest attendance ever for a cycling event held in the United States, as well as for any single sporting event held in the state of California, surpassing such competitions as the 1994 Men's World Cup Competition, 1999 Women's World Cup, 2005 Honda U.S. Open of Surfing, The X Games (multiple years), the 1988 World Series (Dodgers vs. A's), the 1989 World Series (Giants vs. A's) and the 2002 World Series (Angels vs. Giants)."

Hopefully that turns into lots of tourist dollars for the state and lots of income for the sponsors. We all want this thing back again! It's been awesome so far, podium girls notwithstanding.

I think this calls for postings of hot podium girls until the thread gets locked.
