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the lower classes in place by giving them a pat on the back and they are so thrilled that they now feel part of this outdated establishment that they take there title or award with self relish and a boost to there own ego .If Wiggo was rock n roll he would tell them to stuff it.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.

To me, "winged" just looks like an ill fitting skin suit... :noidea:

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.
