Love that pic of DeVlaeminck, but not surprised. He was always the coolest looking bike rider. Nobody comes close IMO.

Keeps the lower classes in place by giving them a pat on the back and they are so thrilled that they now feel part of this outdated establishment that they take there title or award with self relish and a boost to there own ego .If Wiggo was rock n roll he would tell them to stuff it. The coolest people have and you never hear about it .

Its shit like this that makes me glad that the US does not have a royal family or some antiquated class system that hands out stuff like this. To me, its like giving the purple heart to someone that got a few papercuts pushing papers on an army base.

Yes, but US hands out free burgers if you eat them fast enough.

I believe UCI will ban these skinsuits before you know it.

What's the widget on the fork leg? I think it says "ride strong", with the barracuda logo?

"Shaped" clothing is already UCI banned, with wings under the arms being mentioned as a specific example

@Maximilian

The "Widget" is one of the transponders for electronic timing here in New Zealand. "Ride Strong" is an initiative from BikeNZ (http://www.ridestrong.org.nz/rs/Default.aspx)

Must be a borrowed bike. Ugly for sure though. Really wish it was easier for companies to make smaller headtube options.

Bike is definitely his. So it the one below. He's got Nationals in 2 weeks and he's looking like he's on form.
