So Christian didn't win the ING DC criterium, but that's OK. He has had a splendid season. I heard from one in the know that he doesn't really like crits because of the possibility of injury, especially this late in the season.
But he did take some time to hang with fans at a breakfast and at a signing on Saturday. What nice guy. Above he is with a young fan (who looks psyched to have his pic taken with THE BEST bike racer in the United States not the universe) Below, he is bestowing his blessing on a future member of the peloton. Doesn't he have a cute smile? VdV- even though the kid (above) has a pretty cute smile too. I think the baby below may just have gas
I love this guy. He is just tooooo nice!
Random: Is it just me, or does the bald guy look kind of like Cadel's body guard?
More Randomness: Helen, what kind of sun glasses is C sporting in the pic above?
