A perrenial race spectator or some esoteric velo-metaphor maybe?

Eurosport just mentioned the peleton passing the 'old Devil.' A curious reference for the unintiated....

Actually no. He's a fan in the real sense of the word (i.e. fanatic) - he's a German who's at just about every major race dressed as the Devil, just for fun.

I suppose he's wearing sandals and black socks too. Those zany Germans.

A friend of nime had his picture take with him at the Cyclocross WOrlds a couple of years back. He said he was pretty ripe. His name is Didi!!! I guess he is sort of like the Rainbow Wig guy witht he John 3:16 shirt before he flipped out.
