Cheer up lads, might never happen. Or rather it might. Whichever.

Choosing a winner from all the entries you fired in for this one was tough. I thought there'd be a few references to Shameless, Channel 4's cult TV series set not a million miles from the Manchester velodrome… for which this looks like a publicity still for a couple of new lead characters in the new series… I think it's that team shellsuit-type top that Sean Yates looks so at home in.  An honourable mention to Fringe then for being on the same wavelength with his "i'll be Liam and you can be Noel". 

But the winner has to be misforturob - who appropriately enough seems to be in Manchester for this borrowing from the film Goodfellas

"I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?"

Well, it made me laugh… humour's a very personal thing. Anyway we'll be having a ratch down the back of the road.cc sofa and a some suitable schwag will be heading north asap. 

In the meantime why not read Simon MacMichael's interview with Team Sky's head honchos Dave Brailsford and Sean Yates which is the reason we were sent these pictures of the two of them looking moody in the first place.

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.
