Thankfully we’re not on YouTube yet, at least not that anybody has told us.
I’ve just been introduced to Robin Moore and his Le Velo video on YouTube – and yup, being a roadie is a religious thing. Robin really does look like an experienced roadie at the start, he’s verging on How-to-look-Pro, but when you see him on the bike, its all wrong! And, he doesn’t inhale but who am I to criticise, its a funny video.
Now what smokes company used to sponsor a pro team?
Maybe there was more than one. Cippolini posed smoking too, I guess that’s where Robin got the idea and half a dozen bloggers out there.
When I think about it, the topic of cycling crashes has the makings of a Blog site all of its own. What is it with YouTube and people posting videos of cycling crashes? I can’t watch, I keep remembering the sound (emanating from behind me thankfully) of metal scraping on tarmac from road races in years gone by. Eeek. There I go again, showing my age, I’ll need to get racing again, as I guess its not metal scraping on tarmac any more as www.bustedcarbon.com illuminates beautifully. Think my next one might be an alu.
