Yellow Jersey Stains

VecchioJo has his faith in yellow restored

In these troubled times when the once fabled Yellow Jersey is tarnished, stained and all but worthless it’s good to know there’s something yellow you can still rely on. That’s right, custard.

“Custard” is a song about love, bikes and Home Economics by actress and comedienne Tara Flynn. You might have seen Tara on the telly in “The Impressions Show”, “Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle” and “The Omid Djalili Show”, or heard her dulcet tones in radio plays and as the voice-over in adverts, and now you can see her covered in custard. Well who wouldn’t? The song comes from Tara’s comedy album “Big Noise” which might just have flown in under your musical radar, but if you’re tired of ladies singing about their "goodies" and "milkshakes" and "jelly" this could just be the warm lumpy comforting

anecdote.

Hmmmmm, custard. **Caution - video contains rude words and a custard drizzled woman**

Jo Burt has spent the majority of his life riding bikes, drawing bikes and writing about bikes. When he's not scribbling pictures for the whole gamut of cycling media he writes words about them for road.cc and when he's not doing either of those he's pedaling. Then in whatever spare minutes there are in between he's agonizing over getting his socks, cycling cap and bar-tape to coordinate just so. And is quietly disappointed that yours don't He rides and races road bikes a bit, cyclo-cross bikes a lot and mountainbikes a fair bit too. Would rather be up a mountain.
