    I guess this doesn't really have much to do with actual racing but I found this story on VeloNews:

    VeloNews.com - Ben Day's unwanted passenger

    Apparently Ben Day was infected with a tapeworm for years and was still winning races. The story really gives me the jitters.

    That's only because y'all down there would wash it off a bit and throw it on the barbie until sizzling...

    A bit of salt 'n pepper and I'm sure you'd call it a delicacy.
