At the recent London Cycle Show, long-time RCUK member Adam Tranter was caught by our camera discussing the latent appeal of Brooks leather handlebar tape with editor Richard Hallett.
Thanks to all who put up a caption to a picture that really defies description. Understandably, many contained blatant sexual references of a sort that cannot be condoned on a family site. These, therefore, while hilarious, have had to be discounted.
Of those that amused the judges, the gnomic ‘Adam was keen to demonstrate to Max Moseley[sic] why he should get involved in cycling’ from Simon Edwards 5 stands comparison with VLAD’s “Hallet[sic] took all of this for the last caption photo ! – Well , I’ll double it.” Nice.
Nick Connell-Smith 2 might have won with “Yelena Isinbayeva hadn’t been the same since her HRT treatment. Nor had her pole” had he not thereby ruined the editor’s future enjoyment of pole vaulting, while Richard Forster got close with “Adam contempates the business end of the latest monocycle upgrade.”
The joint winners, however, are JJ with “Pint of your usual is it sir?” and Nick Franzini with the perceptive “Tranter grip on journalism falters. Not even leather bar tape helps him up the greasy pole.”
