okay, dumb question time: why put the arms of your sunnies on the outside of your helmet straps? What's the logic behind that?
'cos it's PRO, innit. :D


And that, as Willy Voet said, the straps can compress the frame against your head, which can be a nuisance in a crash if the straps tighten significantly, snapping the frame and embedding this in your temple.

Everyone knows you'll never beat the Italians for amazing sunglasses/anything, right? That being said, the English speaking peloton has produced some gems over the years.

I'm not sure that he ever rode in these, but I present to you Andy Hampsten. Classy.




Phil Anderson was also a fan of the snow googles look, and what a classy look it was.

we really are getting desperate for things to talk about arnt we. And its only november.

Besides, we all know who has the greatest sunglasses in the peloton.



Oh dear. I was just able not to hate Transitions-Tyler and ESP anymore for this commercial. That was horrible.
Now it all comes back. :eek:

Lets say, I had 90 "racedays" on ESP. Lets say 2 hours of livecoverage in average. Lets say there were 4 commercial breaks/hour with with Tyler.
Sometimes 2 times in one commercial break, but we just leave that.

Thats 720 times "Ich bin Tyler Farrer, Sprinter im Team Garmin Transitions"
But I will round it up 1000, because this commercial even came when i watched other sports on ESP.

I agree. this was played at every commercial break of any race on eurosport. wanted to rip my eyes out I saw it so many times. on the up side, transition is out next year so lets hope we dont have to see it ever again.

Sorry to go a bit off topic but yes i must agree with everyones thoughts on the Tyler Farrar commercial. watching Eurosport streams.......and every set of breaks we would hear this....sometimes twice...........so i am sick of Tyler Farrar 'Sprinter of team Garmin Transitions'................and also another ad that i have had enough of...........FOCUS!!!! Yes i freaking get it....their bikes are made in Germany:(

It's just all Oakley Jawbones these days. Yaawn. Have you seen Hushovd's rainbow versions? Not for me, no.

What big eyes you have.
Ok here's my question about this picture. In what universe are Chiappucci, Abdujaparov, Boardman and some random form Roslotto ZG all riding together in the same group on what looks like some sort of mountain?

The '96 Tour de France was memorable for many things, not all of them good of course. Abdou was riding for Refin that year and it was to be his last complete Tour because the following year he got a ban for our old friend clenbuterol. Abdou spectacularly won alone on what was essentially a mountain stage. ;)

Here's the original CN report of Stage 14 which is, I think, probably what you're seeing in the picture there.
