    I had to watch Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne on Cycling.tv but it didn't have sound. I was just wondering what the commentators were saying about the seat grabbing. Any info would be appreciated.

    They said the guy was probably a "wiley (sp?) pro" and "probably would get kicked for it."

    Me too. It reminds me of a bigger guy in a club I used to ride with. He used to latch on to someone else's seat post while going up a climb. Man he pissed a lot of people off doing that.

    Cipo got in trouble for holding on to a jersey in the Milan san Remo, I think, on the Poggio. He said he was looking for a ham sandwich in his team mates pocket!

    Somewhere on line I saw an amateur video of Cipollini being... ehm... assisted while going up the tough climb (don't remember the name) at the tour of georgia last year. I am sure that you can google it...
