Don't Do This

Turn your sound down.

You know, I wondered about that during Le Tour. Not so much a crash, but watching the first place guy prematurely celebrating his impending victory when he has a lead of about 0.2 seconds made me think that somewhere, sometime, someone got that wrong.

Erik Zabel, who won the sprinters jersey in the Tour several times, was the last to do it in a big race.

But somehow those guys know, and the victory celebrations are very important to the event. For the sprinters, the style is very important.

What's the old football adage? Act like you've been there before.

That doesn't apply in cycling. (Act like you've been there before.)

The cycling adage is (if you're a pro), sit up, zip up your jersey, and show off the sponsors since they financed this gig, and (if you're an amateur) sit up and put your arms in the air so you look just like the pros who do the same thing.

That being said, I'd probably wreck myself if I tried it.
