    You know, he's just TOO pretty. He's like an ad for something - cologne. I am not complaining, but I prefer something in the Cippollini line.

    On him, pink looks good.

    I'm glad to see this because when I saw the finish of yesterday's stage I thought "I wish the TE girls/women/personnes could see this"
    Brilliant riding yesterday. And wonderful countryside (mountains,snow, pretty villages).
    Did anyone else see Paolo Savoldelli's descent of the Mortirolo?

    But see what I mean?



    Not that pink isn't good. And no, I didn't see Paolo's descent, but that would be scary in any event...

    Personally, though the guy in white is handsome, I think he looks too full of himself to be my "dream man". So just to expand our horizons, and not least for those with other esthetic preferences, as in say ... mtb? ... there's this rider:

    Half-marathon over. Sabbatical year over. It's back to "sacking shirt and oat cakes" as they say here.

    His (the guy in white) sunglasses are really neat. Does anyone recognize the brand?

    I wish I could find the video of Cipo - I don't even remember which race. He's tearing along, sees a pretty girl by the roadside. Stops, gets off his bike, plants a BIG kiss on her (the bend at the waist kind), gets back on the bike and rejoins the race....

    At the risk of being altogether too clever...
    I think gender is irrelevant when it comes to biking/bikers
    Perhaps we are a gender unto ourselves (like clergy, teachers and choirboys)

    ps what do you mean horizon...I don't even accept *that* limit

    Have to say, there isn't anything better than a little eye candy.
