Separated at birth: Chris Froome and a cheetah?

by leonid   November 29, 2012  

Is it just me or do other readers think there is something of the cheetah about Chris Froome? His build, obviously, but the shape of his head and face. Maybe it is just a subconscious thing to do with his coming from Kenya?

Are there any other animal/pro-cyclist lookie-likies out there?

Bradley looks like a meerkat.

Cav looks like a chimpanzee.

I won't have it said that he is a cheater.

The attack in the Vuelta with Sanchez (or was it Rodrigues...any way some Spaniard) lying on the deck was tactics.

No, Froome is no cheater.

Oh.....I see now.

If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it. Gaius Julius Caesar.

Not an animal, but I've always thought Chris Froome looks like Tintin.

Dog72 that Wiggins/Muppet comparison is hilarious.

This thread is brilliant. Lion King and Eagle Muppet currently the best, although the OP is actually correct that Froome looks a bit like a cheater. Maybe it's the freckles/spots!

Ha! Brilliant.....
one of the lads in work last week said, "did anyone see the Top Gear where they had these new argo-carts with three wheels either side - I'm gonna get one"

I chirped up, "they are not new, the Banana Splits used to race around on those".....

The place went quiet until one of the lasses said, "The Banana Splits"????????
