Devil man and black & white USA flags?(4 posts)

Devil man and black & white USA flags?tj90
Jul 15, 2002 8:13 AM
Every year I watch the tour there are 2 things that Im guaranteed to see: the devil man and these black and white USA flags. The devil man is a treat and enjoy seeing him pop up. However, I have not been able to figure out the flags. Can someone explain what the meaning is?? Is it a protest? Is it a low cost way to make a flag. Someone please help me end this nagging in my head....

The black and white flag is the flag of the Britons (the Brittany region of France).

I met him at the World's in Lisbon last year (picture posted in the race section). Really nice fella who's very popular with the fans who love to have their picture taken with him. He actually builds bikes. Not something you'd want to race on but novelty bikes. Sometimes you'll see a large VW van with a large, I do mean large, metal bike on a trailer. That's his rig.
