Oh to be a fly on the wall. Hang on... this isn't a wall!...

The judging is done. We liked the "Assos quality control" one, we liked the "pretty fly" one but the winner has to be cycle, the last one in (obviously keeping your powder dry) for "never spill energy drink on your shorts" which manages to combine wit, economy, and some sound cycling advice. The signed Jens Voigt poster could be winging it's way to you soon, if we can get Mat to take it off his bedroom wall… if not, and he is a big lad, it'll be some equally desirable Eurobike schwag. 

Finally we'd just like to say that no animal was harmed during the making of this caption, mainly because we couldn't catch it.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

Is that a bidon in your pants or just a blue bottle?

1 - First spy shots of the Castelli buttoned fly shorts...

2 - Proof that padding the front of your shorts with a banana can attract the wrong kind of attention...

3 - Taiwan sweat-shops start using even cheaper to employ labour...

4 - Another reason why I don't DO Lycra...

Rapha push the boundaries of cycling kit design even further with their alternative fly position shorts.

Sorry, I couldn't get a knob joke into this one!  3

He might look the part with his new bug-eyed Oakley shades, but deep down, Seth Brundle knew there was no way he'd ever squeeze into those lycra shorts again.

"Finally!" Says Boonen, "Photo evidence that Cancellara cheated to win the Paris Roubaix. No wonder it sounded like he had a motor if a small army of these guys were helping him to fly to the finish!"
