When that failed, I went back to cycling. Heh.
Anyway, most folks with even a vague knowledge of cycling are aware of the colorful nature of the uniforms cyclists - both professional and amateur - wear when riding. Most are made of lycra spandex - which is why they can sometimes prove rather, ahem, revealing on some riders - for the sake of better aerodynamics in racing.
On some cyclists, it looks cool. On others, it's kinda hot. Heh.
Okay, cycling fetishes aside, I thought this week would be a good opportunity to introduce some of you to the colors you'll see if you happen to catch a race this summer. (There are many races shown in "highlights" mode on Versus channel. Le Tour de France is shown in full in July. Check your satellite listings if you're curious.)
So, with no further ado, allow me to present to you, in no particular order:
13 Pro Cycling Team Kits
Below, we have it modeled by the lovely and talented Heinrich Haussler.
(My thanks to Kristof Ramon for his lovely pic...)
The BMC means, simply, "Bicycle Manufacturing Company". Okey-dokey.
Below, we have the George Hincapie special edition of the kit - a design only worn by George, as only Big George could wear it.
Not my favorite team in the world, though I do like Alberto Contador - who is the model below - behind that sweet bike. Thanks, Alberto... :)
One of my favorite kits - it just looks sleek and swift, to me!
Just a glimpse, below, on model Oscar Pereiro.
Below, we have it modeled by Ryder Hesjedal -a Canadian cyclist who might just have the coolest name in the peloton. LOL!
Below, Lander Aperribai Aranda models for us.
Kim Kirchen models the kit for us in full.
Just a glimpse here, too, modeled by Edvald Boasson-Hagen.
And here we have brothers Romain and Brice Feillu modeling for us.
Christophe le Mével models, below.
But our model below, Daniele Bennati, shows just how good this kit can look.
And of course...
And, yes, I know.
Scroll down a little, please...
I went with a themed pic, again.
And gosh, but...
(Thanks to Audrey Lafont for providing the pic!)
Ciao for now!
