Can I ask that you insist the team wear beards please.

Sideburns not good enough?

I'm surprised Wiggle or some-such haven't started selling stick on Wiggo sideburns.  I'd buy a pair.

I sold him a pair I didn't need any more.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Cut-out-and-keep sideburns in The Sun the other day.

Bugger, missed that!

(Ahem)

Bump!  We have exalted company within our numbers.

Brad posting from his mobile? Dave Millar tweeting YACF TT info? Cav giving directional advice in Audax?
Dave Brailsford giving tips in Further Faster Fitter?

I watched the Wiggo documentary last night - it was brilliant and quite funny.  On the one hand you had Shane Sutton basically saying you just need to ride your bike lots in order to get better and there isn't much science behind his philosophy.  Then you had Tim Kerrison's approach which is clearly very scientific!  But what the heck, the cocktail of philosophies clearly works!

As long as that's the only cocktail they're using...

"Ride lots" is borrowed from Baron Merckx, I believe.

... though Team Sky is (still) clearly a coalition of the very willing  ;)

Are neither of you curious to know his politics?

*Harumph*
Oh I say, whatever for?  The man's a cyclist, must be a good egg. Couldn't be cyclist otherwise eh wot? *Harumph*

Hooowever, given that he's made GB cyclists run on time maybe it should be "Dave Brailsford for Il Duce"? After all he's already got the haircut for it :)
