Come on, I think you can do better than that.

Might as well make a steak joke while you're at it.

Well done willy-finger for not being put off of your kind offer of posting TdC pics - despite the snide comments - and then posting a doping cartoon yourself. There are few things more likely to draw fire than someone who takes themselves too seriously taking themselves too seriously...

Can you not drop the holier-than-thou stuff? Jesus, man. Get over yourself.

Splendid. :)

To add to the general ambiance of silliness, I got a picture of Miranda Hart puling a silly face in the banner ad above your post...

Having caused a bit of a rumpus yesterday, I'd just like to say that I enjoyed the Mt Diablo stage last year. Sagan could have done with more serious challenges though, it got a bit monotonous (heresy!)

I'd be more worried that his chainrings and cassette appear to be on opposite sides of the bike

Yes, and a weird gear ratio he's using. Would need a cadence approaching 1000 rpm to win a sprint on that...

I like that none of us find it surprising that he has syringes for arms. I guess you get used to that with cycle racing.
