What's on Tony's mind? Win schwag!...

After much scratching of head and stroking of chin Fringe wins the Day 1 Eurobike caption compo for "bread, sausage and coke three of my five a day. mmmmm" which  rather spookily is what I was actually saying. For his efforts we'll be sending the lucky lad some "glamourous" Eurobike Schwag. Don't we won't try and and post you any sausage though. 

 

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

No, I still prefer the 2009 vintage currywurst. I can still taste it now.

OK, but apart from the diesel engine, aspirin, the royal family, Beethoven, Eurobike and sausages, what have the Germans ever done for us?

Told you German Autobahns were smooth. Can eat and drink with both hands at 100k.

To be honest I was surprised it had taken so long, you can't post a picture of a man holding a Wiener in his hand and not expect at least one knob gag, surely?

I'm not that bothered about weight myself, but if you cut it off carefully it'll stay fresh in a bottle of Diet Coke until you've finished in the mountains.
