My vote for all-time: 2003 Vuelta green tube-top girls. I keep watching that video and fall off the rollers every time.

I've always been decidely opposed to the tube-top as totally unflattering but I think I have to make an exception in this case.

Let's face it boys ......

This is one part of our sport/passion that lacks development. Any sport is nowadays measured by it's podium chicks. Our standard should be as high as that of Formula 1.

I, personally am volunteering my services to be the International Director for the Advancement of Cycling Podium Chicks. I dont think it will be easy and my intentions lay purely in the improvemnt and awarenes of road cycling worldwide. There may be others more qualified than I, but none with the determination & motivation that i posses.

Vote 4 ME !!!!!!!!!!!!

ciao

F1 babes...

With such a huge difference in spendings between auto racing and cycling, podium girls will never even come close to competing with F1...but I guess one can dream.

Imagine if USPS had the money to hire twenty models for their team...

F1 budgets are Huge - The bicycle industry is Huger. One is created to be watched on TV the other is a means of recreation/sport for many and is modestly showcased on TV.

It's not impossible and the money is around for offering the hiring of better podium chicks. Any result in viewership increase means more dollars and is self propogating. What cycling needs is a more dictatorial governing body like F1.

it begs the Question whether its time for the upper end of cycling to be sold off to private interest like F1 or does it nead a new upper echelon format like the Chamions League in european football or the Super 12 in rugby. i would like a new world cycling format where the best riders compete more often against each other - condensed but competetive and made for TV. Using the tour/giro/vuelta and adding similar scale events around the world to create an official circuit is long everdue in my opnion. better Podium chicks will be a byproduct of this. its time for change.

We're heading in that direction, Spirito. The UCI Pro Tour will be a top-10 club with the rest of the world acting as development.

With local development so important, I would like to say that I am on your side. I will begin interviewing grass-roots podium girl canditates this very evening ;-)
