I wonder if anyone has actually done that. Has anyone gotten the grime
changed into permanent ink? Gotta be someone out there at a local race
at least. I haven't seen it yet.

That and stages that end in field sprints, which are gay.

Bicycle racing needs to get back to its two founding principles:
cleanliness and manliness.

p.s. I don't want to start a new thread for this, but if Pereiro had won
the TdF last year, would that count as a virtual win for Landis? I'm
trying to sort out a fantasy virtual cycling pool I'm running and am a
little confused by all the D.Q.'s last year.

I'm sure LIVEDRUNK(tm) could provide the funding
if the computer could spare a few petaflops to
optimize cocktail mixing algorithms.

I always wondered when IBM would come out with a computer that would
