The ratings would good if the girls had to wear outfits that made it likely that a boob would occasionally pop out during a sprint!
Oxygen channel might have it.EpicX

I happened to be flipping channels one Saturday evening and saw people pedaling like crazy. What can I say, I stopped flipping! My wife got a kick out of watching it when she realized what it was ("What? You mean they have a Tour de France for women? That's cool!! Keep it on!!"). I'd check their website, I bet they'll have it again this year.

some are even Chippendale's boys . I used to find good photos on the Femminile, and they do the same at the women's Giro as well - the Euros are firmly in the "what's good for the goose" frame of mind. H-P has had podium boys on a couple of occasions in the past, but some of the typical offensensitive American types got all riled up about it, the dumb*sses.

I'm always amused to see these tiny little petite things happily hamming it up on the podium with a gigantic beefcake on either side!

Speaking of that, ever noticed that quite a few of the (male) Tour stage winners are practically at eye level with the podium gals'... you know... Oscar Sevilla comes to mind.

Good for them.

Yes, the men pros are dwarfed by the podium girls, sometimes even when the riders are standing on the boxes. Sort of funny.

Remember the Giro last year (I think) when Garzelli was wrestled to the ground by the podium girl after he sprayed her with wine? It was like a 10 year old boy being beaten up by his 16 year old sister. Hilarious.

Would that be these guys?Pogliaghi
