Non Sequi-"Tours"

The drama of the Tour. Gripping. The kind of gripping that leaves you glued to your television and puts your job at stake. In the last two days of the tour we are left wondering who will win.

But the real burning question remains: how many viewers will actually buy a SAAB? I’m not so sure about a car, but if SAAB made a bike, I just might be interested. The only drawback to a SAAB bike? Jets add a tad bit of weight. And I'm not exactly sure if they are UCI compliant.

Since we’re on the subject of marketing and the tour, how ‘bout that clever Rabbit ad? It took me about two or three times of seeing it before I realized the pun. You have to admit “the birds and the bees” music coupled with the black and white baby rabbit, well, somebody surely had their thinking cap on! Makes me want to go buy one. But I think I’ll save my money for a SAAB jet bike.

And finally: have Phil, Paul, Al and Bobkee been dipping into the “juice” lately? Their constant Leipheimer /Landis boo-boos and Bobkee’s off-air giggly laughter and cursing leaves me wondering. Anyone see them chatting with Dr. Fuentes lately?

Nice shot - I used that image too once in the blog. Apparently that thing can get you going pretty darn fast (like 60mph in no time)
