outdoor life network
best gift to the cyclist since
dual shift-brake levers

they cover the tour
but what makes 'em so special
is, of course, Bob Roll

watching "gear guide" show
three "professional" testers
rating bikes and stuff

Lennard Zinn, others
and this week, Mister Bob Roll
(no pork chop sideburns)

others critical
Bob gives all bikes "full four stars"
raves 'bout "com-po-nents"

on commercial break
OLN clip, Bob on bike
speaking I-talian

Bob in pink jersey
not far stretch from opera sing
using foreign tongue

most of all i like
hearing Bob say "com-po-nents"
oh, and "tewer-day-frants"

During last year's Tour coverage I recall him talking about all the diffent places he crashed. But hey, he was good enought to be bringing Andy Hampsten hot drinks during his famous "snow climb" during the Giro. (Anyone remember the year?) More than many of us will do in our lives.

Bob Roll rules. He helped launch Lance Armstrong's comeback with a very intense training camp in Boone, NC. in 1998. He is colorful, expressive, and passionate about cycling. Can I get a job with OLN now?
