If you could be any type of rider......


what kind would you be? For the purpose of the discussion, these are the rules (and yes, this isn't Nam Smokey, there are rules):  You can assume the persona of a pro cyclist, but not a specific cyclist. You cannot become Tony, though many of us would like to. You are you, but with a stronger heart and bigger legs. You earn your salary by riding for a Pro Tour or Pro Continental squad, with all the perks that go along with it. You are part of the 25 man/woman roster. You don't have to assemble your own bike (unless you want to). You don't have to drive the team bus (or talk on the phone, or handle the money.) In short, you're paid to ride your bike, and when you're not doing that, you're paid to eat and sleep.

So, what kind of rider would you choose to be?
