Someone else has got the hump!

The World Cycling Championships are on right now - but the one picture that stood out for me was this picture of Dominique Cornu riding to a gold medal in the under 23s. First of all, this picture comes from Pez Cycling News (, a site worth checking out every day. But, back to why I like it - it's the humped back. As you might be able to see in the pictures of me on the road and track on this blog, I ride with a humped back. I always felt a bit self concious about it - and I wondered if it slowed me down. Then along comes Monsieur Cornu - may he have a long a successful career!
