Poster Boy for a Generation, or Media Slut?
Who'd have thought it would come to this? Due to a desperate shortage of good-looking riders, and the reluctance of male models to get sweaty and/or dirty, the organisers of the Highland Fling have resorted to using images of struggling Masters racers to adorn their promotional material. If you look closely (clik the above link, front left of right pic),you will see our favourite dishevelled doctor, the king of the Colin-oscopy, heading the pack across a grassy knoll in search of a cheap feed of fish n chips and a comfy lawnchair. Not content with an appearance in Ride magazine, Mountain Biking Australia, and New Idea, your's truly has his 'mug that sunk a thousand ships' splashed across the poster for this years suffer-fest. If I'd known that this was gonna happen, I'd have worn the tight blue shorts and put on the blonde wig. So, who's up for a fling?
