Yet another devil picture and check out the vertical leap on this one! Any NBA scouts out there? Anyone know the why fans dressed as devils are so popular? Figure there must a tradition behind this. Allez Armstrong!

Thanks Doug! Knew there had to be a story, so it's the same guy I keep seeing. Forgive my Tour naiveté, got to learn these things somehow.
Funny... I thought it was Tom Dashaul (nm)keith m.

armstrong fiendish rides
didi at roadside his cue
to attack ullrich

sold his soul for legs
ullrich didn't specify
what caliber, though

1999
tour devil's garb was hodge podge
now he has sponsors

you see that big bike
in the mountains, you expect
time for suffering

takes a bigger man
than lance to drop the hammer
on a bike that big

devil's fame renowned
his inner-tube tail follows
much jumping prowess

'99, prior
devil was one of a kind
now see his minions

tour devil language
who knows? all you can hear is
aye! aye! aye! aye! aye!

a deal with didi
jeffreyh made? or did he?
my haiku powers!

Didi "El Diablo" Senft gets almost as much press as Lance. The bicycling.com tour forum had quite a bit of info under "devilish question". There was an AP photo in the sports section of our paper of Didi right next to Lance during stage 11. zdf.de/sport/tour has a great shot of Didi painting the trident in the road with white paint while adorned in horns and a red speedo. Yikes!
