In Pursuit of the Maillot Jaune

AKA, Men in Lycra

"Ready, for an arduous ride into treacherous territory."

By now, everyone should know I'm a leg girl. 
 I also have a thing for the color blue.  Light blue.

Green isn't so bad either.

I think my eyes have been assaulted.  Definitely TMI.  
I prefer a little more lycra than this-a little something for the imagination.

Question of the day:  what is a domestique in the cycling world? 
Here is a picture of some.  I wish I had domestic help that looked like this. 
Yellow is such a happy color. In this competition, it is also the color the winner wears.  Hence, the title of this post.

The domestiques of team Garmin-Chipotle.  Do you think they have a built in Garmin-Nuvi mounted on their cycles?  Do they keep food from Chipotles' under their helmets?  Since Garmin comes first in their team name, did Garmin pay more for the honors?  They look pretty good in lycra.  I like their white and light blue outfits the best.  I'm not so crazy about the one with too much argyle; a little argyle goes a long way.  Click on the link above and tell me what you think.  Does he have legs, or what?  I'll tell you one thing, I am not erasing the Stage IV time trials from my DVR for quite awhile.  Whew.  Is it warm in here, or is it just me?

Viva le tour!

Hello Rudee,
I read your comment on Willowtree's blog and came for a visit. Here, I am greeted with music from Queen and cyclers in light-blue. Yes, light blue is a very nice color.

Hi Molly,

WT did write a rather thought provoking post today. Thanks for stopping by.

the guy with not enough on.... that's not Borat, is it?

whoever he is, i'm with you; he definitely doesn't have enough on.

Yes Laurie, that is Borat. You have a good eye and now I've ruined for you by showing you such a nasty picture.
