friends back home get up at 5:30 AM to crowd around their TV sets to watch you in the first mountain stage and what happens? Phil Liggett refers to you as the man with the "balding pate"!!! Nice one Phil, it had me laughing.

And if you need to ask he was referring to Leipheimer.
Imagine you don't know the guy...mr_spin

But now he is easy to find. Phil is just trying to be helpful!
Really?? And here's me just thinking he was trying to poke fun.chopper

I realize Phil is just trying to be helpful, my point is I'm sure a 27 year old who will be bald by 30 would rather be identified in some other manner! Geez!
whaddya mean by 30? if that ain't bald, i don't know what is.rufus

Did you hear Phils' remark about George going up the mountain? Went something like: " There's George now peeling off. It's going to be rather hard for him to drag his large carcass up the mountain".

Large Carcass!! That had me laughing!! Sounded like a slab of roadkill.

I don't think he really cares if he is bald. Have you seen his wife?

I prefer the term "aerodynamically enhanced" rather than bald.

Or, for the non-technical types "wind tunnel friendly."

I lost most of my hair in my 20's. Been shaving the head for 15 years. You guys cursed with hairy pates really don't realize just how blessed we baldies are. No bad hair days or trips to the barber shop, we don't have to carry a comb, our hat size never changes, we don't have to worry about shampoos or conditioners (though we do have to worry about sunburn), nothing to get in our eyes when swimming . . . the list is almost endless.

God only made so many perfect heads. The rest, he covered with hair.
