Well, Sky are making a point over their new-fangled skinsuit so maybe Big Sean is going to hold him down before the first long TT and the boys can take a razor to those mutton chops.

Noooo - it's like Samson, you can't take the 'burns! Big Grin

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice...

The 'burns' disrupt the turbulent air moving across his face in the same way the aerofoil's and fin's on an F1 car work. They're actually improving his aerodynamics.

I cannot resist commenting on this.....SideBurn's are definately the thing to have! If he loses the Tour by 1 second because of them they will be worth it!

One more flat stage to go, then we'll see if the 'burns' are performance inhibitors or enhancers.

What's that coming over the hill...............

Careful with the 'enhance' word! The UCI might hear you and ban them!

Something I noticed on the highlights last night.
Wiggo's sideburns have been thinned down a bit where his glasses are.

I wonder if he gets some rubbing from them and has had to thinned them out a bit or realised they leave his glasses poking out a bit so not as aero Thinking .
