This is for all the danes who watches cycling on eurosport - don't know if it's also in other countries.

Transitions' ad doesn't look that bad IMO, but it sure lacks any concept. there's also a short Salice commercial at eurosport with the italian cyclist whose name i forgot...

not a typical tv ad, but still pretty dumb:

The Sidi ones are the worst :? - The problem with the Transitions ad, is that it appears about 5000-6000 times during a stage! :wink:

Sidi is bad, for sure. They might as well have renamed the company "Seedy" (internationals: this is an English saying for 'perverted')

Anyway, this has been the worst so far after watching Le Tour on Eurosport. I think it's Contador's somewhat...errr...seedy look when he fondles the saddle. The music also makes *no* sense at all.

Like Tyler Farrar, enjoy the race in all light conditions. Transitions, always the best protection for your eyes. Damn... I have been brainwashed....

I like the first one, it is a good idea and must have been fairly cheap to produce :-)! :lol:

The spec ones are good. The others are horrible. That sidi one with contador sanchez and absalon was like something a community college class made for cable access tv in 1989.

The Pippo one is awesome. Only he would do some like that and maybe Cipo.
