Yes it is true. I know it will come as a major surprise to you, but I do not. In fact I do not even think a sideburns is ever in my future. In spite of the no hair thing, I could have sideburns...if I wants to. I mean, I have to shave everyday. But, I just don't think sideburns look that good on me. I have tried. I actually have put a legitimate earnest effort into it. I slept well, I ate right, I bought new razors, I listened to a lot of Pete Townsend, I bought some pants like Tom Jones. But alas, I just didn't mesh well with it.
Aside from that difference, there really isn't much difference between Wiggins and I. We are both tall, we both are crazy skinny, we both can go really fast on a bicycle... (I admit that I am significantly better looking, I think he does as well)
Of course there is the Converse high tops. I would bet that my high top collection is better than his. I can pretty much fake the same English accent like he does. I am not even sure if he has any Converse. Shame. I also don't go in much for mod stuff. Although I did stay in a hotel in Paris recently.
I bet I can eat more burritos than he can in a year. Burrito eating is one of my core competancies, as timetrialing is one of his. I also have never seen him clear a double on a Remedy, which means I am way better than he is at that. (categorically) Can he even think about rebuilding a 4stroke motor?
Ok, he has won a little bike race in France that I have not yet won, but I am not done yet. I might decide to win it next year. I am good like that.
In all seriousness, that was a masterful performance in France this month. Chapeau.
I bet I know more words than he does to Pearl Jam songs... See, the list just keeps growing.
Jens Voigt is everyone's hero. After the race I asked him about the effort on the Champs. He said "I had a little bit of aggression to get out. I figure I saved Paris tonight. Can you imagine the damage I would have done to Paris tonight if I had not gotten that out of my system? The city would be burning tonight if I would not have. I saved Paris today!". I love that guy.
