A to the W to ESOME. I gotta wonder, since the guy seems like a decent rider is this idiocy? bad proofreading after running the spellchecker? a prank?

No matter why, this line kills me: "It must have been really cool to do this with the pelican though."

Many a lonely birdwatcher has thought the same thing...

I like how he's got a like to the Daily Peloton in the sidebar on the right, it adds a bit of mystery to the situation.

I think it's great!!! I'm converting to using pelican right now. You'll pedal a lot faster if you imagine a flock of angry pelicans chasing you down.

Reminds me of the computer geek who explained how to remedy something and then said, "Walla!"

If Phil Liggett started talking about "the breakaway getting scooped up by THE PELICAN" it would conjure up a much more terrifying image, further befuddle and bemuse rookie cycling fans, and scare small children. I like it.

you are all finally starting to understand the true death animal....'the pelican'...no matter how good a break away is or how fast solo riders are, the pelican will 98% of the time peck at them, catch them and eat them for a snack before reaching the finish..I LOVE IT!!...just think what this will do for the sport when liggett begins to speak in the true language of cycling
