What are Colnago trying to tell us? Give it your best shot and the funniest answer wins a prize

Colnago have the knack of peeking people's interest and we got a big entry for our caption compo and lots of good ones too but after much deliberation the winner is… seamdreamteam for "Colnago design limited edition iPod covers" alththough handlebarcam's more caustic contribution ran him close. Seamdreamteam drop us a line to info [at] road.cc and we'll pop you a prize in the post when we get back from Germany.

You see a lot of things at Eurobike, the dozen or so exhibition halls are heaving with bike stuff to be shown off to the world of bicycle fanciers. Or, if you are like Colnago, you will make people wait to see what they have got to show you by popping a cover over everything. Either that or they have a problem with pigeons in their corner of the hall?

Write something funny about what you think is their reason and we will send you some goodies from the show (probably not a Colnago 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.

New Colnagos; like birds of prey, they need to be hooded or they'll simply fly off into the sunset.

Along with electric groupsets, Colnago have added automatic, battery-powered cabriolet-style covers on all their range-topping models. Just press a button and it folds into a special saddlebag. Perfect for protecting the exquisite Italian paintwork from careless and less affluent clubmates propping their tawdry sub-three-grand bikes up against yours at cafe stops. Only costs an extra 3999.95 euros.

With the forecast snow staying away on the Galibier, Europcar didn't need the secret weapons Ernesto had thoughtfully given them for the descent.

The new TV car-proof Colnagos with their omni-directional airbags unfortunately arrived too late for the 2011 Tour de France.

Obviously an electric-powered midget bike for rest-day shenanigans. Either that or Ricco's trying to sign himself up under his 2 year old son's name and is using props to try and make it more convincing....

Clearly a there is a real threat from groups of bored pigeons, who have no stake in society, probably using Facebook to co-ordinate their attacks. I blame the parents.

surely they have hit on the additional profit of "add on sales" and they are just exhibiting a new range of bike covers?
