Is this what's meant by "peaking" at the Tour? Or is Virenque overly excited to be in yellow?

Sorry to burst everyone's bubble but that isn't a "bone".
Yellow saddle, yellow shorts? NMManBehindTheCurtain

did you notice the yellow jersey?mohair_chair

It looks to me that the shorts are caught on the saddle, and you can't tell what color the saddle is. This was Virenque's only day in yellow this year, which was the stage to L'Alpe d'Huez. If he can get a boner riding L'Alpe d'Huez at race pace, defending the yellow jersey, he's a better man than I.
That's an awfully long saddleMisJG

Look carefully, you can see the back of the saddle at the back of the pic (under/behind his behind). If that's the saddle in front, it's really long. Looks too far away from the back of the saddle to be the nose.
That's what I thought tooKristin

Anyway, when was that last time you saw a saddle that hooked at the end? A new feature perhaps?
Well then, that saddles really nose-"up" if you know what I mean. nmowKristin

I suspect that the you guys didn't "study" this picture for very long. I inspected it closely and I dunno. Saddles don't curve like that.
Just dont let your boss walk in on you!the bull

You rember what happened last time you where looking at saddles! :)
Anyways, I hope thats all water under the bridge.
Fizik Arione?ManBehindTheCurtain

Wasn't it Virenque who was riding the new extra-long fizik saddle? Supposed to give him better leverage for climbing or something?

The Fizik website reports the Arione, available beginning in October, has extended length (an additional 30 cm).

On Virenque's day in yellow it would not be at all unusual for fizik to break out a yellow saddle to complete the all yellow picture.

...it looks like it's sprouting from halfway down his thigh.

I'm going to say that, in my expert medical opinion, the nose of his saddle bunched up the pad of his shorts and it's sticking out.

Hell, I'll try it if it's the secret to climbing like Virenque...
