Dudes On Bikes… Dammit Lance, NO!

October 2012

In my post on chicks on bikes, in the comments section, Jimmy Taylor pointed out that Lance Armstrong himself broke the most obvious of cycling rules for men…

He wore a banana hammock in a Triathlon.

Good God man, you know better. If you need any further evidence of how goofy this looks, I give you one of the fittest men on earth as far as endurance athletes go, and he looks terrible. This is one rule that cannot be broken… This is beyond a no-brainer. It’s more difficult to pull off than the famed backwards helmet

    In all fairness that was back when speedos were acceptable to race in! I know several guys who did and now wear tri suits. It was a sign of the times…

  2. It was supposed to be an homage to the roots of the sport back in the eighties when speedos were common racing uniforms. I’m still trying to figure out why Faris AlSultan still races with a Speedo. Looks chafingly uncomfortable to me.

      We’d have to ask the ladies whether bikinis chafe or not, eh? Old school or not – old school is those goofy two flap racing shorts that all the old guys wore too high (waist band at the belly button like their mama taught ’em) making for an uncomfortable and equally strangled nether region.

      Old school or not, that look is all bad.
