Kohl and His Trophies - Cheeky ******

Again, not sure if this was covered here...couldn't find a thread via Search, but how about Kohl's cheek (and I'm not talking about his but t)?

"The 27-year-old said that he still considers himself the third-place finisher of the 2008 Tour de France “I know how hard I worked for that success and how I got that success in comparison to the others.” He still has the third-place trophy and King of the Mountain jersey, and won't give them back. They are well hidden.”" :eek:

Brilliant. Riis tells the Tour to pick up its yellow jersey at his house, while Kohl teases us all with the statement that he's hidden his KOM jersey and third place trophy and doesn't intend to return them.

Anyone up for a game of hide-and-seek?

Riis has had time to mature, and consider how he feels about winning the Tour like he did. He's finally come to that conclusion.

Kohl is still a young man. He probably feels cheated by the system because what he says is true. He was up against people who were just as neck-deep into it as him.

In 10 years time, he won't feel that these prizes have value I'm sure.
