I'm A Winner!

Just checked out the new issue of City Cycling one of my favorite cycling magazines published monthly, on-line only. Lo and behold, I won the monthly caption competition! (Italics added!)

Last month's caption competition was this image



The pick of the entries we received just had to be this suggestive number from Rabbi Stone:

"I'll switch to spandex if you will..."

Too bad that there is no prize, as far as I am aware.

I rode 22.2 miles this morning and then watched the last hour of stage 6 of the TDF. A pretty exciting uphill stage, the first of the mountain stages, although not quite the Alps or the Pyrenees yet. For a few minutes it looked like Christain Vande Veld of Garmin, one of my favorites, was going to take the stage and catapult pretty close to the Yellow Jersey. But it wasn't to be. Rather, Ricardo Ricco won the stage and Kim Kirchen moved into yellow due mostly to the fact that Schumacher crashed less than a kilometer from the end. While on flat stages such a crash would not count against a rider, on mountain finishes there is no mercy. Everyone expected a move from Valverde that didn't come, and Vande Velde was really stalking for Millar, who couldn't follow. So the so-called big boys are all still close and no one has really decided to take the lead yet.
