I'd find it pretty funny if the podium boy would also kiss the rider :lol:

I know some riders who wouldn't mind

FWIW if I was a cyclist I'd totally lean in to kiss the podium guys. Full equality NOW.

But actually if you're going to have podium guys, you might as well just have the trinkets presented by the local mayor or an executive from one of the sponsors or something. I notice British races seem to do this. Just shake hands with them and that's it.

It's almost as bad as having nicely dressed podium girls standing onstage at a women's race. You know, so the photographers have something worthy of being photographed instead of just sweaty disheveled women who just won a race.

Of course it's this sh*tty country that spawned the idea that we're too "enlightened" to have nice things after a hard days work.

Brian Holm was right.
