i have already opined on this via a letter to the editor.
if you read velonews, what are your thoughts on this atmo -
At the time of writing Cav was acting out his innermost Grand Dame Diva and the "finger" would make his picture very hard to take.
I don't blame Cav for any of this.
I find Velonews very hard to take, mostly.
Didn't he get fined in a race for holding up two fingers? I guess it meant the same thing in another country. Maybe ths is just a continuance of his latest project 'Fingers Around The World'............ next up the 'thumb' followed a month later by the 'fore finger'.
If he wants to flip the bird for publicity that's between him and his people. But he's not honoring the gesture. His hand isn't clenched. His finger isn't fully straightened. His veins aren't bulging. The finger is about anger. Do it RIGHT, for fcuk's sake.

It's a great article. Certainly the picture a reference to when Cav got fined with his two fingered salute.
I'm paraphrasing, but basically these sprinters are so hopped up on adreniline when they finish a race, it's like when you or I are almost hit by a car when bike commuting.
That anger and lashing-out is similar to what sprinters do EVERY RACE.
There's a whole bunch of junk in print mags that is stupid, this ranks pretty low to me.
The Pearl Izumi "Naked" campaign is way stupider.
Velonews is still a great magazine. The Nick Legan pieces are killer. Beautiful race pictures. What magazine beats it?
His hand looks like a limp d(@#
Dude is so emo the rest of the time why not now?
