The Ad Breaks
Today’s ad break is via the Cannondale Pro Cycling Team who many have noticed have the names of animals emblazoned across their bike shorts. These names are associated with the Fi’zi:k Spine Concept programme;

The Italian component makers have supplied the pro squad with special edition black-and-white saddles – the Aliante (Bull), Antares (Chameleon) and Arione (Snake). In Fi’zi:k terminology, the Bull is for less flexible riders, the Snake for very flexible riders, and the Chameleon somewhere in between.BikeRadar

WARNING: Having the name of an animal emblazoned across your lime green bike shorts may result in visits from the fashion police.
