I wish he had completed the attire and competed in Chuck Taylor's and toe clips.

Good to see him racing. It is obvious, like riding Nevada City, that he just wants to race his bike. A real man keeps riding regardless of his situation, another tucks his tail and runs when he can't hack the pace or the heat anymore.

and cargo shorts!:)

Credit to Floyd and Lance for still competing despite everything that is going on. These are two guys that really like riding their bikes.

"Landis finished 16 seconds off the win in 3:51."

At least 8 to 10 of those seconds was the shirt. Maybe all of them. I wonder what exactly about his skin suit was illegal, and why?

He was wearing a skin suit from the old OUCH team, which no longer exists. Since it is no longer a registered team, he cannot use the kit.

well done Floyd, you wanna race doesn't matter if you have the latest bike, shoes, jersey if you got it in your legs go for it.

i remember the story of Sean Kelly and his brother went into the local town and saw that a bike race was about to start and they asked if they could have a go, no racing bikes, no nothing and Sean nearly won the race, he was 16/17 beating guys who trained to race. Class in cycling does not come from a blood bag.

Again, bravo Floyd, this is what real bike racing is and was always about.

Whats wrong with that?

It just looks like he is copying DZ?

Too Manits? Which would be ironic considering it was Floyd's Aero position...
UCI Cycling Regulations rule 1.3.023:
For road time trials...a fixed extension may be added to the
steering system; in this instance only a position where the
forearm is in the horizontal plane is permitted.

(Floyd's current position concurs with the rules.)

a little ot, but what does the uci have against non-horizontal forearms? i remember a stink about floyd's position a few years back, but i guess i never figured it out exactly. thx.

I don't want to speak for the UCI, but I believe they cited safety
reasons (just as they did when they banned both of Obree's time
trial positions) i.e they believe you can steer, and perhaps brake,
with more control when your forearms are horizontal as opposed
to having your hands higher or lower than your elbows.
